“Travelers and Magicians”
Two men, two women, two journeys are woven into an intricate tapestry of desires as it takes us on an adventurous emotional tour through the heartland of Bhutanese Buddhist culture. It is a mystical fable of lust, jealousy and murder, that holds up a mirror to the restless character of Dondup, and his blossoming attraction to the innocent character of Sonam. The cataclysmic conclusion of the monk’s tale leaves Dondup with a dilemma–is the grass truly greener on the other side?
