Summary, etc.:
An astonishing journey of redemption, faith, and devotion. PATHS OF THE SOUL blurs the border between documentary and fiction to follow a group of Tibetan villagers who leave their families and homes in the small village of Nyima to make a Buddhist "bowing pilgrimage"-laying their bodies flat on the ground after every few steps-along the 1,200-mile road to Lhasa, the holy capital of Tibet. Though united in their devotion, each of the travelers embarks on this journey for very personal reasons.
