The Freedom of being a Buddhist Nun

This is a short film in the Unusual Choices series about the Tibetan tradition English nun Ani Chudrun, who now lives an ascetic life near a forest in Sussex, England.

Previously a successful presenter on Top Gear, a BBC TV program about cars and driving, she gave it up after a trip to Kathmandu, where she first saw a famous, and very haunting, photo of the Karmapa as a young boy.

She decided to go and ask him the right questions, and although we don't learn what they were, we do see that she got the right answers, because not much later she took ordination in the tradition.
