Storyline

Nawang, a Tibetan monk, arrives in rural Putnam County, Indiana looking for the reincarnation of his late teacher. In an old farm house, he finds a reckless, warring couple, Kim and Warren, and their asthmatic ten year-old daughter, Camilee. When Nawang comes to believe Camilee is the 'tulku' he seeks, he feels compelled to save her from her violent, selfish parents to rid himself of his own complicated karma, and bring the holy lama home.

Powerful
9 November 2013 | by sharoncrarySee all my reviews

Mud Lotus is disturbingly beautiful and ugly at the same time. The scenery and the quality of light is overwhelmingly peaceful and uplifting. The characters are struggling and hurt. At first it seems to be a simple film about a weird occurrence in rural Indiana. But with each passing day since watching it, I wonder more about what happened and what it all means. It is a rare film that is powerful enough and well enough created to do this to me. I can't wait to watch it again for details I may have missed. For greater insight. For more questions from the angry scenes and more of the peace of those sunlit, calm scenes.
