To hear the sound of the ocean in the Himalayas... This unlikely wish takes a film director of Gyoto and her three girls to Gyütö, where a Tibetan Buddhist monastery, perched high, echoes day and night the sound of sacred tantric chants of meditation.

Wandering freely about wherever their curiosity leads them, they discover the daily life of 400 monks living there.

Waking up 2050

This film deals with the question 'What is Buddhism?'

A deceptively simple question contemplated through diverse perspectives and stories of Ani Pema Deki (Emma Slade), the first western woman to be ordained in Bhutan, Kodo Nishimura, a Buddhist monk, LGBT activist and make-up artist and Prof. Daniel Veidlinger, Professor of Buddhism, in the Department of Comparative Religion and Humanities at California State University.
