Learn how child refugees keep their culture alive after China took their country. The kids at Tibetan Children's Village tell the story of the occupation of Tibet and show how their school teaches the wisdom of their culture and helps them work towards returning to their homeland. Deeply rooted in Tibetan Buddhism and traditions, these young voices rise up in hope and anger as they work to keep their way of life in the face of the Chinese occupation. An intimate and visually stunning portrait of the lives, history and beliefs of the young refugees at Tibetan Children's Village in the Indian Himalayas.
