The friendship between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu was one-of-a-kind. In this special documentary feature, join the two international icons for an exploration of how to live a life filled with joy in spite of immense challenges.

Primarily comprised of exclusive footage from five days they spent together in Dharamshala, Mission Joy invites viewers into an intimate experience of deeply moving conversations, hilarious banter, and profound wisdom shared between the two spiritual leaders. These conversations were also the basis for the New York Times bestseller, The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World.
