The Monk and the Gun

Pawo Choyning Dorji



In the year 2006, after centuries of being isolated in the Himalayas, the Kingdom of Bhutan has finally embraced globalization, by becoming the world’s youngest democracy, and last to connect to the internet and television. While rural people struggle to learn the modern ways, an American travels into Bhutan in search of a treasure and crosses path with a young monk who wanders through the serene mountains, instructed by his teacher to ‘make things right again’.
