Synopsis

Filmmaker Pan Nalin travels to Kumbh Mela, one of the world's most extraordinary religious events. Every 12 years, about 100 million Hindus gather on the banks of the Ganges to bathe in its sacred waters. There, he encounters remarkable men of mind and meditation, facing an inextricable dilemma; to embrace the world or to renounce it. FAITH CONNECTIONS explores such diverse and deeply moving destinies as a young runaway, a Sadhu, a mother desperately looking for her lost son, a yogi who is raising an abandoned baby, and an ascetic who keeps his calm by smoking cannabis – all connected by one faith against the spectacular display of devotion.
