The gripping story of a love that could not be, set in Ancient China
In the vast grasslands of Mongolia a beautiful Chinese settler girl, Nugha, feels attracted to the young nomad Kamo. He desires her. The evolving events bring about drama for both sides - sedentaries and nomads.
As the seasons rotate from lush green summer to deep-frozen winter and back again, conflicts and strife unfold… The Monastery on the Yellow Hill plays a crucial role in the events, with its well-trained warrior monks and the Emperor’s Mandarin in residence. The final and surprising resolution comes through the strength of the young settler woman Nugha.
A script with a strong female lead we can totally root for. With fully fleshed-out three dimensional characters, martial arts, conflict and action, poetry and cruelty, love and death – and redemption. A beautiful story with true depth, developed primarily as an independent movie yet with definite mainstream appeal.
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, from his Office in Dharamsala,
