The can, which is being used as a soccer ball by a group of young monks, soon finds its way into the hands of Geko, a stern older monk who, if this were a Hollywood high school comedy, would be the assistant principal. Geko (Orgyen Tobgyal) brings it to the monastery's kindly, absent-minded abbot. It ends up in the hut of an eccentric lama, who fashions it into a candleholder for the makeshift altar in his hut. It has evolved into a sacred object.
This empty soda can might serve as an apt metaphor for the film's wry perspective on the relationship between the sacred and the profane, and for its understated approach to the phenomenon of globalization. The penetration of Western consumer culture into remote corners of the world tends to be viewed, simplistically, as either cause for celebration or for alarm, a force that will either sweep away outmoded traditions or destroy ancient, fragile systems of custom and belief.
