This title is currently not available in your location, but many other great films are.


With its exquisite natural beauty and emphasis on ‘Gross National Happiness’ Bhutan – ruled by the Wangchuck dynasty for the last century – seems like a model for the rest of the world. But behind this idyllic façade there lies a more complex reality. This film explores the dynasty’s rule, while also taking a look at the youthful counterculture movement which has emerged since the country’s exposure to the internet.
