Brothers in the Buddha features Michael, a seventeen year old Vietnamese-Canadian youth who has taken up a unique discipline: at the tender age of ten, Michael was ordained as a novice monk...at a Buddhist monastery in the heart of Edmonton. This inspiring documentary examines the personal life and challenge taken up by Michael - both at the monastery and in his community - as he seeks to define his identity in the modern world. With its focus on one young Canadian, Brothers in the Buddha speaks to the process of multicultural coexistence that continues to shape Canada today.
