Plot – In 1939 the Austrian mountaineer Heinrich Harrer leaves on an expedition to Tibet with the intention of climbing Nanga Parbat, regardless of his pregnant wife Ingrid's concerns, who he has entrusted to his friend Horst. Meanwhile in Tibet, a 4-year-old boy is designated as the new Dalai Lama and revered by devotees. When the climbers arrive at the base camp, in the whirlwind of the snowstorm, they are taken prisoner by British soldiers and discover that war has broken out and they, as Austrians, are considered enemies of Great Britain. After some time in a prison camp, Heinrich starts reading books about the mystical Tibet and then receives a letter from his wife asking for a divorce so she can marry Horst. Together with other companions he flees from the camp and then he continues on his own. After many vicissitudes, he finds himself with the head of the expedition Peter. Together they reach Lhasa, the Tibetan capital, in a journey that transforms his character. Now a teenager, the Dalai Lama calls Heinrich to the palace and he spends many days with him. Meanwhile, China invades and occupies Tibet. Before the invasion, Heinrich understands that it is time to leave and would like for the Dalai Lama to follow him. However, the boy remains. Heinrich returns to Vienna and meets his son, who he has never seen. Then news of the Dalai Lama's escape to India arrives. The friendship between the two is still ongoing.
