“A beguiling combination of Western and Buddhist parable, Zhang Yang’s latest is a beautiful and thought-provoking work …”
After discovering a sacred stone in the mouth of a deer he just killed, Taibei, a young lonesome Tibetan cowboy, embarks on a long and difficult mission: to bring it back to the holy mountain of Buddha’s handprint. His journey turns sour as an obstinate woman, Joan, and a psychic yet dumb elf, Pu, soon decide to join him. Not to mention the two violent brothers on his tale, who are on a revenge quest.
Note: All dialog in films from non-English speaking countries will be presented in its original language accompanied by English subtitles.
