Nangsa Wöhbum is a woman's story. Nangsa is a girl of great beauty and virtue in ancient Tibet, and her only wish is to help her family and practice the holy Dharma. But her family and a local king have other plans. Soon she is married off and becomes a wife and mother in an aristocratic family. Her courage in the face of the painful circumstances of her life provide a timeless example of perseverance in the spiritual journey.

Drimay Kunden is a prince, a man of great sensitivity and compassion. But when Drimay gives away the kingdom's most precious possession, he and his family narrowly escape execution and are cruelly exiled to the wilderness. His story is one of transcendent generosity, forbearance, and the triumph of compassion.
