“Buddhism meets film noir… (in this) beautiful and inventive debut”- Hollywood Reporter In this “Buddhist noir” detective Kinley investigates the case of a missing Buddhist nun and falls into a risky alliance with his only suspect- Choden, an alluring woman known as the village “demoness.” When Kinley realizes that Choden’s stories of historical dakinis (enlightened Buddhist women of power and wisdom) might provide the very "clues" needed in understanding the investigation, first he might have to surrender to both her charm and a belief in the supernatural. Nuanced with visual symbolism, Honeygiver Among the Dogs is a slow thriller of mystery and compassion.
