Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman director Jennifer Fox focuses on the relationship between high Tibetan master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and his son Yeshi, the reluctant reincarnation of his great uncle, in this compelling take of fate versus free will. In 1959, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu fled Tibet for Italy. A respected spiritual leader with many disciples, Chögyal eventually had a son, Yeshi. According to his father, Yeshi is the reincarnation of his great uncle, a beloved Buddhist master. But while Chögyal implored his son to follow a spiritual path, Yeshi showed little interest in the ways of his ancestors, and no intention of carrying on their legacy. Ever since he was a child, Yeshi struggled with the concept of being a reincarnation instead of his own person. Now, as his life journey comes to a crucial impasse, Fox allows Yeshi to tell his own story, in his own words.
