In Little Tibet 2, Sonam traces his father’s footsteps through Nepal to Mustang, where the Tibetan language is still widely spoken and the traditional culture of Tibet remains.

The film’s climax is an encounter with a veteran of the Tibetan guerilla army that operated from bases in Mustang during the 1960s and 1970s. Sonam learns about life in the 2000 strong army that included his father who fought with the guerillas. The encounter leads to the border of Tibet.
