Lo Sum Choe Sum (3 Year 3 Month Retreat)

The traditional “3 year-3 month retreat” or “Lo-sum-Choe Sum” is practiced by Buddhist monks, nuns and other devout practitioners. 3 years, 3 months, and 3 days is calculated as the time needed to achieve a higher state of clarity and motivation. By cutting oneself off from the world, and delving into the inner mind, the retreat is supposed to transform the practitioner. Can Lhamo, a young, wounded girl facing the harsh gaze of the world, find her own formof retreat and redemption?
