An American woman and her Tibetan husband are making a life together in the United States with their son, who has just turned three. When two monks arrive on their doorstep with the revelation that the toddler may be a reincarnated lama, the ultimate test of a mother’s love may be her ability to let him go. Interspersed with Tibetan Buddhist ritual and dance and featuring renowned Berkeley-based Tibetan artist Tsering Dorjee Bawa, the play is as powerful as it is beautiful.
