Tenzin hasn't seen his older brother, Pasang, in five years, so he is thrilled when Pasang suddenly returns to their Tibetan village late one night. As the boys' mother struggles to support the family, Pasang, now a novice monk, finds himself under suspicion of the Chinese authorities .The brothers' only chance of escaping this oppressive existence is to flee to India, where they can achieve freedom. On the forbidden and dangerous journey, they face great challenges, including the unimaginable cruelty of border police, and the unforgiving severity of Mother Nature as they attempt to cross the world's highest mountain range, the Himalayas.

A true story first told in an acclaimed documentary, Escape from Tibet is a riveting tale of courage, adventure, and triumph.
