When Tsering Jampa is 4 years of age, Chinese soldiers burst into her home, disrupting her otherwise peaceful life, and causing her and her family to flee from Tibet to India.
What about the pain? Her mother's singing, old stories and her father's prayers surround her and nourish her consciousness.
What about the injustice? When Tsering is 12 years of age, she finds the key to the answer. It is hidden in an ancient verse. Forty years later, in March 2008, her people in Tibet unexpectedly revolt!
Tsering is living in the Netherlands and is director of the International Campaign for Tibet-Europe. During a demonstration rally at the Chinese embassy in The Hague, she masterfully restrains the pain and frustration of her young fellow countrymen. What role does the ancient verse play in these dramatic developments?
In "KINDNESS, a letter from Tibet", director Clementine Ederveen combines a dramatisation of Tsering's childhood with the harsh political reality of Tibet we know now.
The film breathes life into the caring, ancient culture of kindness which has been tranfered to Tsering by her parents and shows the way she is today as an indissoluble effect of previous experiences.
