One of the world's most admired men, he is the spiritual and secular leader of a nation that exists only in exile. Born Tenzin Gyatso, he is the fourteenth man recognized by his people as Buddha's reincarnation and honored with the title he is known by worldwide - the Dalai Lama. Since 1959, when he fled his nation after a failed rebellion against the occupying Chinese, he has lived in exile. Follow the Dalai Lama from his childhood in the "Lost Kingdom" to today. Interviews with Chinese scholars, Tibet activists including actor Richard Gere and His Holiness himself detail the long struggle to free Tibet.
