Three contrasting journeys reveal more unanswered questions than solutions. A candid portrayal of inward conflicts on the Tibetan Buddhist path. Powerful Tibetan Buddhist master and moviemaker, Khyentse Norbu (The Cup, Travelers & Magicians) is contrasted by two young monks within his large Tibetan Buddhist spiritual kingdom, as they all travel in opposite directions across different cultures.
As a charismatic Tibetan master breaks ancient traditions to chase movie-making dreams. a unique, intimate view of the contemporary Buddhist world unfolds. YOU ARE DREAMING ME tells the story of contrasting quests of contemporary lamas and young monks looking for their life’s destination.Yuan-Ren, a Taiwanese young man in search of inner meaning, secretly goes to Tibet to become a Buddhist monk, without his parents’ knowledge. Meanwhile Tibetan-born Bhugay dreams to go to America, against both tradition and his parents’ wishes, but with the double-edged encouragement of their master, Khyentse Norbu.
And of the younger monks, do they have a chance to live their dreams or must they be drawn back to the world that they are expected to live? Are they happy with their destination? Their interwoven dreams and journeys on the path to enlightenment reveal more unresolved dilemmas than answers.
