Synopsis

A rare insight into a community of Buddhist monks and nuns, who have given up all their possessions, left their homes, and parted with their life savings; for one common purpose - to master the art of mindful living under the guidance of the world-renowned Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.
With unprecedented access and filmed over three years in France and the USA, this intimate and meditative film reveals how this monastic community are transforming suffering within themselves and in those who they meet on their travels around the world.
Thich Nhat Hanh, the Vietnamese monk Martin Luther King Jr. nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, is one of the most popular Zen Buddhist teachers of all time, and is widely acknowledged for introducing the concept of mindfulness to the western world.
The film touches on the universal themes of belonging, love, loss, hope and death, relevant for not just Thich Nhat Hanh's monks and nuns but for us all.
