    • Tibetan opera singer 'Yiga Gyalnang' is abducted and
      thrown into 'Drapchi,' one of the most dreaded prisons in Tibet, for what the Chinese government see as rebellion through her songs of freedom and expression. After years of isolation and torture, she breaks free and
      escapes to Nepal and then the West, taking with her an unbroken soul, tremendous strength and her voice that could never be silenced.
