Indian born filmmaker Pan Nalin makes his directorial debut with this sensual, elegant look at sex and spirituality. Tashi (Shawn Ku) is a brilliant young lama who has just completed three years of solitary meditation in a remote hermitage. Now returned to his ancient monastery headed by Apo (Sherab Sangey), Tashi experiences a sexual awakening, which makes him question the spiritual values of his monastic existence. Believing he needs to experience worldly existence in order to renounce it, he leaves the monastery and marries Pema (Christy Chung), a beautiful woman he meets while performing a harvest blessing. But although he finds great joy with his wife and newborn son, Tashi is unprepared for other aspects of everyday life such as jealousy of a neighbour, unethical farm trading practices and his attraction to an exotic migrant worker at the harvest, Sujata (Neelesha BaVora), making him re-evaluate his spiritual destiny.
