Madame Alexandra

In 1911, Alexandra David-Neel leaves her husband in Tunisia to follow her dreams into the Himalayas. She meets the 13th Dalai Lama and several other amazing characters before finding her way into (forbidden) Tibet with her adopted son, Lama Yongden. Her years of extremely hard travel -- disguised as a Tibetan -- result in world-changing, best-selling books, including "My Journey to Lhasa" and "Magic and Mystery in Tibet."
