Once Upon a Time in Tibet 2010
At the beginning of World War II, American pilot Robert Smith is taking part in the effort to help China fight against the Japanese forces. During a liaison cargo mission from India to China, his cargo plane crashes somewhere in Tibet. Yongcho is a young single mother, and the tribe she belongs to is the descendant of the Evil Kingdom, which was conquered by the hero-Gesar King many years ago. Since her earliest age, she’s been a castaway by her own tribe, because she is thought a “cursed woman” as an incarnation of evil. After surviving the crash, Robert tries to find his way back to his force, but the harsh elements are almost stronger than his will to survive: he finds himself snow-blind and finally falls in a faint in the blizzard. Robert follows the footprint of people and arrives at the tribe. Fair-haired Robert is regarded as a “monster” by the tribe. People think that the arrival of a stranger is considered another bad omen, so Yongcho, the “cursed woman”, is charged with the duty of taking care of him and sending him away after he recovers. In this environment, where there is little room for individual feelings and nature is often hostile, both Robert and Yongcho will learn to know each other as well as themselves. Now, together and stronger than ever before, these two lost souls can fulfill their destiny in this unique journey.
