Dolkar is slowly losing her identity as a Tibetan. Then one day she meets Tibetan independence activist Gatso whom she is rather suspicious of. This is because the faint childhood memory of climbing the Himalayas seems to suggest that this stranger is actually Gompo. Through their encounters, Dolkar comes to terms with her identity, and pieces of her memory along with those of Gatso-Gompo help her find perfect closure. The Sweet Requiem deals with a life deprived of choice and the resistance of this reality may require some level of imagination to understand, but in the end, leads us to an endless realm of soul-searching.
