The Himalayan monarchy of Bhutan isnt exactly the hub of Asian cinematography. It wasnt until 2003 that Bhutan had its first homegrown feature film, Travellers and Magicians. Like many a good Buddhist tale, its about the journey to self-discovery. In search of a better life, Dondup meets a monk while on the road. After hearing the monks sordid tale of a similarly desperate young man, Dondup realizes there may be no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
