    • Synopsis
    • The film focuses on the similarities between three totally different worlds - the world of Sahir, whose father refuses to pass judgement on his fate, the world of Bouba, a pupil at a Koran school who has to find the largest part of all knowledge, and the world of Sonam, who has to sell his dzo (a crossbreed between a yak and a cow) and therefore journeys to town through the Himalayas with his daughter. The filmed tales provide the viewer with a glance at universal wisdom and music.
