Former Buddhist Monk Lobsang was trained under the guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama but 8 years ago he left behind a life as a spiritual teacher in the United States. On a remote mountaintop in the foothills of the Himalayas he rescues orphaned and neglected children.
5 year-old Tashi is the newest arrival. Her mother recently passed away and she’s been abandoned by her alcoholic father. Wild and troubled, Tashi is struggling to find her place amongst 84 new siblings. Can the orphanage’s love and compassion transform Tashi’s alienation and tantrums into a capacity to make her first real friend? And can Lobsang transform his own unhappy childhood into an opportunity for other ‘uninvited guests of the universe’ to avoid a similar fate.
