From Europe and North America, through the fall of communism in Eastern Europe and Russia, to being kidnapped by guerrillas in South America, the film portrays the path of a great woman at the forefront of a turbulent, ever-changing world.

demonstrating Hannah's pioneering role in spreading Tibetan Buddhism around much of our World! The film
answers "most " if not all of the controversy surrounding
the selection of the 17th Karmapa. Additionally, we see Hannah applying the Buddhist principles under many taxing 'real life' circumstances, and particularly her demonstration of how to die with grace and dignity! I
was so 'drawn in', that i became part of the journey. The
Tibetan people have been used and abused yet remain
the LOVELIEST people on the planet! A must see film!
