Movie Info

Young monk Tenzin Zopa has spent most of his life studying at the feet of the esteemed Geshe Lama Konchog. When the older man dies after a long, influential life, Tenzin is assigned to find his teacher's reincarnated soul. Tenzin journeys throughout Nepal, from one small village to another, in search of the child in whom Konchog's spirit has come to reside. This documentary charts Tenzin's arduous, emotional quest, a task that will be judged a success or failure by the Dalai Lama himself.

    Incredibly moving documentary about a Buddhist monk's search for the reincarnation of his former master. A fascinating journey, told in an almost narrative form, "Unmistaken Child" is a rare glimpse into an ancient spiritual process that is nothing short of unforgettable.
