A philosophic story about life in its most true and pure way. Desire, hope, falls and ups as happiness, truth and restraint. A story of a man through all of his major points in life.
If you watched one of the two and liked it, then you'll surely like the other one, too. Both films follow the lives of Buddhist monks while containing the same persona constellation. A journey that is meant to show life in its purest form with all the philosophical aspects to it.
