Summary:
The movie is the story of two Hindu ascetics (sadhus). Uma is a Swedish woman, and Vasisht Giri, an Indian man. Together, they go on a pilgrimage of self-discovery into the Himalaya Mountains, towards the springs of River Ganges, in pursuit of Hindu saints and mystics. During their journey, they meet a sadhu who has not spoken a word for twelve years. They sleep in caves and huts of the ascetics. After twenty-seven years of searching, Uma finally finds the spiritual mentor she has been looking for all her life.
