Travel across the Tibetan plateau with two runaway twelve-year-old boys! Sangdan leaves his family and small village to run toward his destiny as an artist and butter sculptor in a remote Tibetan monastery. Tang Yu, a city boy devoted to his phone and chocolate, runs away from his parents and their expectations. He has no particular destination, so when he meets Sangdan, he tags along on a journey that takes them through breathtakingly beautiful landscapes and into adventure, reflection, and discovery. Shot in Sichuan and Qinghai provinces, the film introduces us to people and places we rarely see. The story came to director Yingxin Chen while traveling in Tibet and took twelve years to produce. In an interview, she confides, “Over the years, I have come to feel that this film is also my own story. It’s like my relationship with cinema, going from misunderstanding to understanding.”
