With their monastery nestled in the luscious jungle mountains of Myanmar,life cycles peacefully for four young Buddhist monks. One day the head abbot, Sayadaw, learns he must depart on a journey through the mountain pass – a journey that may never see his return. Alone and exposed, the four young boys, led by the courageous ‘Witazara’, must now fend for themselves. Strange days filled with ghostly phenomena and jarring events shake the boys to the core, dramatically in influencing their understanding of this world and beyond, as Witazara must choose whether to follow the master into the pass. Shot entirely in newly-opened Myanmar with non-actors, the film bridges spirit, cinema, and traditional Burmese storytelling to open a view onto an unseen world.
