Suab, a Hmong shaman from Southeast China, finds spiritual asylum in the graces of Guanyin after being pursued by mysterious spirits. Guanyin is willing to listen and see what has caused such suffering to the shaman's state...but the more she inquires of the shaman's past, the more her unconditional compassion and mercy wavers. Why has Suab fled her country? From what exactly is she trying to escape from? How may a Goddess find empathy in the conflicting values of a modern world?
