While the soccer World Cup is being played in France, two young Tibetan refugees arrive in a remote Himalayan monastery in India. The atmosphere of calm contemplation gives way to soccer fever. Prevented by various circumstances from seeing the Cup finals on television in a nearby village, one of the young monks, Orgyen sets out to rent a TV set for the monastery. This becomes a test of solidarity, resourcefulness and friendship for the students, while the Lama, head of the monastery, contemplates the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
