"In 20 Jahren entstandene Langzeitdokumentation einer Vater-Sohn-Beziehung: Chögyal Namkhai Norbu verließ wegen der chinesischen Repressionen seine Heimat Tibet, ließ sich in Italien nieder und arbeitete dort als spiritueller Lehrer des tibetanischen Buddhismus. Sein Sohn kam in Italien zur Welt und orientiert sich an europäischen Lebensentwürfen, verliert aber nicht den Bezug zum Buddhismus und tritt in die Fußstapfen des Vaters. Der sehr menschliche Film begleitet ohne Pathos das Altwerden des Vaters und seinen Umgang mit Krankheit und körperlicher Schwäche ebenso wie die Entwicklung des Sohns vom rebellischen Jugendlichen zum Familienvater, wobei er die tiefe religiöse Verwurzelung der beiden umkreist."
