Everyone has dreams and hopes that one day they will come true. Thupten is 10 years old and attends a school for blind children in Tibet. Unlike his classmates, he can see with one eye – and they want him to help them travel all the way to Shanghai so that they can compete in the Chinese equivalent of ‘Idol’. It becomes an epic journey, full of hardship, which they will have a difficult time forgetting.
