Summary:
A provocative and potent look at the Dalai Lama's ceaseless struggle for justice and recognition for the Tibetan people, The Sun Behind the Clouds focuses on the pivotal and particularly tumultuous events of 2008. From the four-month march of exiled Tibetans to the Indo-Tibet border and Buddhist monks' protests in Lhasa, to the Beijing Olympics and the contentious talks between the Chinese government and the Dalai Lama's emissaries, the film uncovers the growing rifts between younger Tibetans and their most respected spiritual leader.
