The Buddhist concept of reincarnation, while both
mysterious and enchanting, is hard for most
westerners to grasp. Unmistaken Child follows the
four-year search for the reincarnation of Lama
Konchog, a world-renowned Tibetan master who
passed away in 2001 at age 84. The Dalai Lama
charges the deceased monk's devoted disciple,
Tenzin Zopa (who had been in his service since
the age of seven), to search for his master's reincarnation.

Tenzin sets off on this unforgettable quest on
foot, mule and even helicopter, through
breathtaking landscapes and remote traditional
Tibetan villages. Along the way Tenzin listens to
stories about young children with special
characteristics, and performs rarely seen
ritualistic tests designed to determine the
likelihood of reincarnation. He eventually
presents the child he believes to be his
reincarnated master to the Dalai Lama so that he can make the final decision.
