From Tibetan lama and acclaimed filmmaker Khyentse Norbu comes “Looking for a Lady with Fangs and a Moustache,” a dazzling new meditation on life, death and meaning.

Amidst the bustling maze of life in present day Kathmandu, a worldly young Tibetan named Tenzin brazenly enters an abandoned, sacred temple of the Goddess Kali, declaring it to be the ideal place to house his new business venture. Having borrowed his mother’s life savings as funding, Tenzin is fully immersed in his plans to create Nepal’s best cafe.

But when he’s struck by a dreamlike vision of a girl moving through a vast ocean of red flowers, Tenzin’s friend Jachung fears it’s a sign of impending death. On the advice of a great sage,a skeptical Tenzin must seek out a very special woman — a “dakini” — who may have a moustache, fangs and a third eye, all to help him figure out what’s next.
