Lhamo and Skalbe are deeply in love, but when they are about to marry, they fail to register, because Skalbe is still engaged in a previous legal conjugal relationship. Skalbe embarks on a journey to search for his ex-wife, only to find a surprise which will change his live forever. Meanwhile, Lhamo is busy with the rehearsal of Tibetan opera, Epic of King Gesar, representing the heroine protagonist Atak Lhamo who fell into hell sinfully. Soon, fiction blends with her own reality and brings back a hidden memory, which might affect her future marriage.

In ‘Lhamo & Skalbe’, I wanted to discuss individual distress and helplessness during the dark period when the values of love and marriage encounter current social background.” Sonthar Gyal
