Plot Summary
The quiet life at a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas is disrupted when two young Tibetan monks, Lodo (Neten Chokling) and Orgyen (Jamyang Lodro), succumb to a soccer craze. Although watching sports on television is generally frowned upon, the elders, including the stern Geko (Orgyen Tobgyal), grudgingly agree to let the monks watch the final match of the World Cup. Before that can happen, however, they need to figure how to acquire a TV set and pay for viewing the game.
