Rebgong is located in Huangnan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Qinghai province in China. Rebgong has been the center of Tibetan Buddhist Thangka art for centuries. However, Rebgong Tibetan women were not allowed to paint or to learn Thangka until recent years. In 2013, I met Lutso, one of the few Tibetan female Thangka painters in Rebgong. The film captures her unique life as a female student in a Thangka art School in 2013, as well as her life and career as a professional painter with a family to support five years later.
