Sing Me a Song

Show trailer
When Bhutan becomes the last country in the world to adopt the internet, a young Buddhist monk must navigate his own way between prayers and mobile dating.

An 8-year-old monk lies in the grass, surrounded by the vast Himalayan mountains of Bhutan, and dreams of becoming a Lama. Cut to 10 years later, when the internet has finally arrived in Bhutan, and Peyangi is now a young man who is struggling to navigate a life that has been turned upside down by the arrival of technology. The young monk still prays with a bowed head, but with a smartphone in his hand, and his attention directed towards the screen. Mobile dating and social media have come to one of the world's most closed countries. 'Sing Me a Song' is a cinematic masterpiece about technology, spirituality and growing up.
