High in the Indian Himalayan epicenter of the exiled Tibetan world, a maverick impresario stages a most un-Tibetan spectacle: a western-style beauty pageant. When a Tibetan-American teenager travels to India to participate in this "pageant with a difference," she is forced to confront the intersection between her cultural identity and her life in the western world.

Miss Tibet: Beauty in Exile offers a fresh perspective on Tibetans living in exile, in particular young Tibetan women.
