A daughter’s journey. Distilling. The nectar of the stories and songs she heard as a child. Weaving. Ancient texts in the fabric of modern life. Rediscovering. The land of her childhood, absorbed from her mother. Where religion was synonymous with the celebration of life. In all its colours.
Journeying from the Himalayas to the Peninsular India. Through rivers, mountains, forests, caves. She meets many practitioners. Each conversation reveals unfathomable depths to seemingly simple rituals she inherited. The nature of life. Why we are born. Why we die. What is change. And what amidst this constant flux – joy, sorrow; success, failure; love, hate – is the one … constant, unchanging, unmoving.
This cinematic journey creates an experiential rendering of one of the Earth’s oldest spiritual traditions. Come. Wander. Experience.
*FEATURING* A former Australian miner. A Spanish sanyasi. An American journalist turned Yoga guru. A young Columbian Indophile. A Ho Chi Minh style Indian mystic who speaks 18 world languages. And many other soul wanderers.
