Sound of Silence

Sound of Silence

Set in a beautiful Himalayan valley, Sound of Silence follows the journey of a mute boy, who loses his mother at birth and is neglected by his father. His relationship with an elderly Buddhist monk helps him to detach from his voiceless suffering and to explore the bond that each creation shares with nature. When his father is jailed, the boy stares at an even lonelier life. With nowhere to go, he joins the Buddhist monastery, as he fights an inner battle of unrequited love.
