"Unmistaken Child" follows a shy and devoted disciple, Tenzin Zopa, as he searches for the reincarnation of his beloved teacher, the world renown master, Lama Konchog. Unexpectedly appointed by the Dalai Lama, Tenzin set off on a quest by foot, mule and even helicopter, through breathtaking landscapes and remote traditional Tibetan villages. In the course of his search Tenzin listens to stories about young children with special characteristics and performs rarely seen ritual tests designed to determine the likelihood of reincarnation. After embarking on this quest of faith, rife with sensitivity and humor, Tenzin eventually brings the child he believes to be his reincarnated master to the Dalai Lama so that he can make the final decision. The journey transforms Tenzin from a modest servant into a spiritual leader, only to become a servant again once the child is found.
