A young man, eager to transcend the worldly troubles in his daily life, embarks on a Buddhist quest. What he finds is shocking as well as thought provoking. The visual style of this animation draws inspiration from two-thousand-year-old murals in the Buddhist caves in Dunhuang. The narration is delivered in the form of traditional opera by well-known Chinese shadow-play musicians and singers.
