    Feels like I've seen this documentary over and over again. The subject is still interesting but they need to find a new angle.

    "Ours is a struggle of a people. It's not a struggle of one generation or a few selected leaders...nor is it to benefit a small minority. Tibetans always say,'The Dalai Lama knows best!' ...but that's a mistake and also dangerous to depend on one person. The Chinese also say, 'Your Tibet problem is nothing. It's only dependent on one person. If that person dies, then the issue of Tibet will also die.' This is what they say but this is absolutely not true! Therefore, for generations, we must work hard and struggle. We must be prepared. That's very important." -Tenzin Gyatso (the Dalai Lama)

    "Every empire rises and falls." The dilemma Tibetans have is to choose between Middle way or a more pragmatic method. The film captures the internal as well as the external complexities of the movement. The non violent tenets seems to be ineffective to have impact on international community .

    The Tibetan struggle for independence and the Dalai Lama's attempts to find a "Middle Way" solution are explored in this documentary, which does a workmanlike job of explaining the recent history and the cultural issues involved.
