  • Synopsis

    The film recounts the compelling life story of Dekyi Tsering, the mother of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. During the course of her extraordinary life, Dekyi Tsering, known by Tibetans as 'Gyalyum Chemo' or 'Great Mother,' gave birth to 16 children, only seven survived, three of whom were recognized as incarnate lamas. The film weaves together a rich life history of anecdotal threads and personal reflections from Dekyi Tsering's children, grandchildren and friends who share the details of her long and full life. With never before seen photographs from their family collections and rare footage of Tibet, the film offers a rare glimpse into Tibet's first family and the woman who inspired them.
