Hello

Synopsis

Tibetan in Germany seeks zen through the art of sushi-making.

Compelled by curiosity, Lopsang leaves his home village in Tibet for the outside world. Having crossed the Himalaya on foot, he settles down in Germany where reality sets in. For survival, he becomes a sushi maker in a fast food shop. This mundane occupation introduces him to a new lifestyle in which ‘zen-ness’ enfolds.
