Summary:
Join the race to save the surviving sacred masterpieces of an ancient Buddhist kingdom.
Mustang (moo-stahn), one of the last outposts of Tibetan culture, is so isolated and protected that no Westerner set foot inside its borders for centuries. But in the early 1990s, this untouched society set high in the Himalayas opened its borders for the first time, exposing an ancient world's dazzling sacred relics long damaged by the elements and neglect.
Today, outsiders are working with local townspeople to rescue priceless masterpieces dating back to the 13th century – but can these efforts preserve history in a way that is acceptable to the local culture? Join the race against time as art and restoration experts mix history, science, and politics in a complicated and daunting mission to preserve these religious works of art. With gods literally peeling off the walls, will outsiders be trusted with saving the sacred art of Mustang?

Special DVD features include: materials and activities for educators; a link to the NOVA Web site; scene selections; closed captions; and described video for the visually impaired.
