The film features the empowerment of Buddhist nuns who came from Tibet. It records how nunnery came into existence by toiling through time and following His Holiness Dalai Lama’s vision: “Fundamental to every world religion is the belief that we must reduce own selfishness to serve others”. Nunnery which came into existence in twelfth century underwent many changes. The film documents how nuns went about recreating nunnery with multiple efforts after escaping from Tibet. With new education apart from spiritual training, they led the life as health workers, teachers, artists, which the film documents.
