A compassionate Buddhist embarks on a mystical quest through Tibet, pursued by black-traders and a man hell-bent on vengeance. Along the way they encounter mysterious travelers, among them a loyal elf, a lovestruck woman, and a mute psychic. Dense forests, jagged rocks, rolling hills, and scorching sands are the backdrop for this mystical western set in Tibet. After a close call with a lightning bolt, a dead deer, and a compassionate Buddhist, ex-con Tabei embarks on a quest to deliver a sacred stone to the top of a fabled mountain. Once he completes this task, all his many sins will be forgiven. What he doesn't know is that Guori, a man hell-bent on avenging his father's death by a killer also called Tabei, is on the hunt slaying anyone of that name. Before their paths cross, each traveler attracts several quirky and mysterious followers, among them a loyal elf, a love-struck woman, and a mute psychic. This tale of parallel journeys dips its toes into several genres, blending aspects of the classic Western with epic fantasy, all the while paying homage to Tibetan folklore. Soul on a String shows its characters battling the harsh physical elements of nature as well as their own spiritual demons, constructing a portrait of vengeance and redemption as lush and sprawling as its surroundings.Art Cinema Showcase, All Seats $6
