A snow lion is a mythic beast of Tibetan legend. As a protector of the nation, the snow lion is emblazoned on the Tibetan flag. Today the Tibetan flag is outlawed in its homeland. Ten years in the making, filmed during a remarkable nine journeys throughout Tibet, India and Nepal. After the Chinese Civil War, the People's Republic of China incorporated Tibet in 1950; in the aftermath have come Tibetan rebellion, border wars, the flight of the Dalai Lama, and a worldwide protest movement dedicated to freeing Tibet from Chinese rule. In this film, dark secrets of Tibet's recent past are powerfully chronicled through riveting personal stories and interviews, and a collection of undercover and archival images never before assembled in one film.
