A young nun, Sister Anna from Poland, has been sent high up in the Himalayas, to serve on behalf of the Catholic parish. Sister Anna is 25 years old and has spent half of her life in a monastery. Now, she is going abroad for the very first time – to Ladakh, an unchanged region that is part of Tibetan India. Having arrived there, Sister Anna finds herself in a totally unknown world. She faces a completely different culture, different energies and a totally different religion. Chance encounters and her experience of the mysterious Tibetan world give birth to sophisticated thoughts and new questions.
This film is a Tibetan parable about love, religion and the search for God. Polina Grishina received an award for Best Actress at Kinotavr Film Festival.
