This film is an eye opener.
3 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

Director Paul Wagner takes the heart of the story to Tibet, a country torn to shreds under the repressed rule of the Chinese. We already know what goes on behind closed doors but are reaffirmed by the brutality these humble Tibetans face through the lives of three children who grow up and each taking a different path in fighting the repressers in one form or another. I'm sure there will be plenty more tales coming out of Tibet.
