In the Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan, the teenage siblings Gyembo and Tashi share a passion for soccer, Facebook and girls. Gyembo enjoys reading classmates’ Facebook posts while Tashi turns heads with her confident, boyish demeanour. As technology and social media become more accessible, these youthful amusements collide with their father’s desire for Gyembo to inherit the family monastery.
