Abstract This documentary follows Tashi, a relative of the Dalai Lama, who was still a child when she and her brother escaped Tibet to settle in Switzerland after the insurrection against the Chinese occupation in Lhasa in 1959. Through Tashi’s eyes, we reflect on the tragedy of the Tibetan people, who have been living in oppression since 1950. Tibetans still seek international support, which is slow in coming at the political level, even though their charismatic leader, the Dalai Lama, enjoys vast support.
