Recognized as the reincarnation ('yangsi') of one of the most revered Tibetan Masters of the 20th century, Ugyen Tenzin Jigme Lhundrup must train to perpetuate this legacy, starting with an enthronement before thousands at age four. 'Yangsi' follows this process, from childhood up to the time he embarks on a world tour at the age of eighteen to fully assume the mantle of his predecessor. Filmed in large part in Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, over a period of 14 years, Yangsi tells a unique coming of age story as it explores the doubts and hesitations along with the unusual strength of character of the 'Yangsi'.
