As a boy, Tibetan nomad Dawa seemed fated for the life of a simple yak herder. As a teenager, he spontaneously became able to recite the epic narrative of his people's legendary 12th-century ruler King Gesar. As an adult, he was acknowledged by the Chinese government as a keeper of cultural heritage...and when a 2010 earthquake decimated his village, he turned to the lessons of the past seeking guidance for the future. 81 min.
