Peyangki is a dreamy and solitary eight-year-old monk living with his mother in Laya, a Bhutanese village perched high in the Himalayas. One day, the world comes to him: the village is connected to electricity, and with his uncle, Peyangki takes a three-day journey to the capital where he will buy a TV set and discover the city lights. Does TV bring happiness?
