Cave in the Snow

Based on Vicki Mackenzie’s book, Cave in the Snow: A Western Woman’s Quest for Enlightenment, this documentary describes the life of female monk Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, who spent 12 years alone in a Himalayan cave at an altitude of 13,000 feet. In 1988, she emerged from the cave determined to build a convent in northern India, and to revive the Togdenma lineage, a long-forgotten female spiritual elite.
