As Tibet erupts in flames and exile Tibetans march on their homeland, can the Dalai Lama find a peaceful solution to the Tibet issue and silence the growing voices of dissent among his own people?
50 years have passed since the fall of Tibet. In March 2008, the biggest uprising since China took control, spreads across Tibet. Meanwhile, exile Tibetans in India, march on their homeland, convinced that this is the only action they can take to support their compatriots. There is a huge groundswell of international sympathy for the Tibetan cause. This is a year of dramatic possibilities for Tibet. Can the Dalai Lama’s strategy of non-violence and compromise finally make a breakthrough in his efforts to resolve the Tibet issue and silence the growing voices of dissent among his own people?
