SYNOPSIS: When we find ourselves in another emotional crisis, we begin to question our existence and the meaning of life. We want change. Eastern philosophies, yoga and meditation are the keys to happiness, or so preach the countless Western adherents of these far eastern practices. Buddhism is the path to enlightenment. But is that really the case?

Following this path to Nepal, we meet the young Tibetan buddhist monk Tenzin, a representative of a new generation, who is grappling with the questions of life and his religion. But instead of enlightenment, we find doubtful young monks who are asking the same kind of questions about their lives as we do about ours.

His insights challenge a universal human foible: the obsessive pursuit of happiness. The Sad Monk takes a look underneath the surface of a distinct and idealised environment; the holistic upbringing and rhythm of life in the monasteries of Nepal.

The film reveals that happiness is not always that which we expect it to be, that searching for happiness might just be an irresponsible waste of our beautiful yet imperfect lives.

Isn’t there a Sad Monk in all of us?
