Synopsis/ Description
The Film brings to light the story of a group of elderly Buddhist nuns from Ladakh, the last generation of unordained and uneducated women in robes. They lead quiet lives in isolated high mountains working as domestic helps and road construction labourers. Neglected by religious and social systems for centuries, the new Nyerma Nunnery is their last call for dignity and enhancement and purification of their religious status.
