On the invitation and prayers of tribal leaders, the Dalai Lama travels to a poor and remote Muslim village at the India Pakistan border. More than a symbolic gesture, the visit results in an invitation by the Dalai Lama to provide a modern education to children from the village while insuring their religious and cultural heritage. Without this film, this amazing story would never be known or seen.
