Two brothers face cruelty, hardship and hope on the ultimate journey in search of freedom.


Eleven-year-old Tenzin lives in one of the world’s most intriguing countries, Tibet, the ‘Roof of the World’. Suddenly Tenzin’s life changes when his older brother Pasang persuades their mother to allow them to attempt an escape from Tibet, a quest for freedom from Chinese repression. This emotional story traces the desperate challenges, hardships and setbacks on their remarkable journey to climb over the Himalayas.


Based on the true story of the brothers' journey in the mid-1990s first made into an acclaimed documentary by Nick Gray, Escape from Tibet is a riveting tale of courage, adventure, and triumph.
