Tibetan teenager Orgyen arrives at a monastery in the Himalayan foothills where he is to join the religious life. But Orgyen is soccer-mad and obsessed with the World Cup (he wears a soccer shirt under his robes) and sneaks out to watch the games. Eventually, the monastery's abbott agrees to allow the monks to have a satellite dish to watch the finals--if they can raise the money to obtain it. Bhutanese with subtitles.
