After discovering a sacred stone in the mouth of a slain deer, young Tibetan wanderer Taibei embarks on a mission to bring the divine artifact back to its rightful home, the holy mountain of Buddha. Danger and treachery lurk at every step, as black market traders and two brothers in search of vengeance stand in his path. Along the way, however, Taibei encounters a motley band of followers who help him on his strange and mystical journey. With a nod to both the Hollywood western and the classic road movie, Soul on a String melds timeworn cinematic traditions into a spiritual, Campbellian hero’s journey. Add a provocative hint of magic and the universal trope of revenge and you’ve got a potent cinematic concoction.
