Containing extensive rare and never-before-seen footage, this film tells the very human story of the Dalai Lama that no one knows. His Holiness the Dalai Lama tells his own story in his own words of his lifelong journey from the world of Buddhism into the world of modern science, and how the world has changed as a result.

‘For more than 30 years, I have spent much time with these Western Scientists. When I think about myself now, sometimes I think I am only one-half Buddhist monk. The other-half Scientist.’ – His Holiness the Dalai Lama

“A revelation, both transcendent and immersive, and humanizes The Dalai Lama in a way I’ve never witnessed on the big screen. It’s beautiful to behold. An absolute must-see.”
