Ten Thousand Days of Summer: The Story of the Boy who would be Buddha (2009)


Ten Thousand Days of Summer charts the first 10,000 days of the Buddha’s life, when he was known as Prince Siddhartha. Born a Prince, pampered and protected, son and heir to a kingdom and fortune in ancient India, Siddhartha led an enviable lifestyle or did he? What else could he possibly want from life? And would he ever be free to find it? A bewitching story of prophetic dreams, predictions, fortune telling, flying mystics, floating objects, visions and fabulous riches, this is also about the realities of what it means to be human. As we accompany the young Prince on his magical journey towards his inevitable decision to leave home, we are faced with our own dilemmas and choices.
