Brief synopsis

"Escape from Tibet« erzählt die Geschichte der jungen deutschen Medizinstudentin Johanna. Auf ihrer Reise in den Himalaya wird sie mit dem tragischen Schicksal tibetischer Flüchtlingskinder konfrontiert und lernt Meto kennen, eine Aktivistin, die im Untergrund arbeitet. Gemeinsam wollen sie tibetischen Flüchtlingen über die sechstausend Meter hohen Pässe in die Freiheit nach Indien verhelfen. Doch bald entdeckt die chinesische Polzei das Versteck des Schlepperduos. Johanna wird gezwungen, die Gesetzeshüter zum »Goldenen Jungen" zu führen, der als Lama-Reinkarnation auserwählt wurde und sich auf der Flucht aus dem Tibet befindet. [Pressetext]
