After discovering a sacred stone in the mouth of a slain deer, Taibei, a young Tibetan wanderer, embarks on a mission ofredemption in order to bring the divine artifact back to its rightful home, the holy Mountain of Buddha. Danger and treachery await at every step, as black market traders and two brothers in search of vengeance stand in his path. Along the way, however, Taibei encounters a motley band of followers that help him on his strange and mystical journey.

Comments: The silence as this movie starts out is powerful. The scenery is beautifully stunning in its grandeur. The music is haunting.
A man, Tabei finds a sacred stone within a deer's mouth that he killed. This leads to him going on a sacred mission to deliver the stone. He faces a long journey. A beautiful girl Chung joins him on his journey. He also has someone following him. He also picks up a kid, Pu. All the characters are amusing.
As Tabei, Chung and Pu continue their journey you get to know each one well. You will find yourself caring about what happens to them.
Tabei uses this traveling to become a better man. He finds love. He finds he cares.
Zandui sets up a battle with Tabei a blood feud since Tabei's father killed his. Now these two sons fight on. Zandui's brother Guori also shows up for this battle. This fight is all about honor for a father long dead.
Gedan also followed Tabei. Gedan the writer. Now this character makes you think.
The sacred land of the Master's Palm Print now this is a wonder to behold.
Than another twist is added.
The mysticism throughout is done in a subdued manner.
The acting is superb. You will be left in awe after watching this film.

Comments: A shot is heard and two brothers had their father's gun. Be careful what you shoot and kill it may not solve your problems but only make them worse. This is a nice drama about family.
