Isolated in the midst of the world's highest mountains, the Himalayas, Tibet is one of the most remote and least accessible places on the planet. This series focuses on the medieval town of Gyantse and the beautiful Baijin monastery. It is both an intimate observation of a society and a compelling insight into how Tibetans cope with living under imposed Chinese Communist rule. Gyantse is a town of two halves: part jumble of tiny streets with traditional wooden houses, part modern commercial centre - an intriguing mix of the ancient and the modern. Here cows, bikes, intrepid travellers in ancient buses and 4x4's jostle each other along the potholed streets.
Through a handful of powerful and engaging characters, follow the reality of daily life for ordinary people living in an extraordinary place. From the hotelier struggling to attract more tourists; to the 13 year old novice monk trying to pass his exams; to the young girl who doesn't find out until her wedding day that she is to be married to two brothers.
