On a remote mountaintop a brave social experiment is taking place.
Buddhist Monk Lobsang was trained under the guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama but 11 years ago he left behind a life as a spiritual teacher in Massachusetts to create a unique community in the foothills of the Himalayas which rescues orphaned and neglected children.
5 year-old Tashi is the newest arrival. Her mother recently passed away and she’s been abandoned by her alcoholic father. Wild and troubled, Tashi is struggling to find her place amongst 84 new siblings.
Lobsang has channeled his own unhappy childhood into an opportunity for other ‘uninvited guests of the universe’ to avoid a similar fate. But Can the community’s love and compassion transform Tashi’s alienation and tantrums into a capacity to make her first real friend?
