Crows Are White

Ahsen Nadeem

After decades of living a secret life, a filmmaker travels to a strict Japanese monastery in search of guidance but the only monk who will help him prefers ice cream and heavy metal over meditation. Crows Are White is an exploration of truth, faith and love, from the top of a mountain to the bottom of a sundae.
