    • Synopsis
    • As a Sadhu, a Hindu monk, Suraj Baba has renounced all earthly attachments to pursue spiritual enlightenment. But his pilgrimage to the Kumbh Mela, the largest religious festival on the planet, only leads him to question his faith. So he decides to continue on to the holy lakes in Nepal: the source of all creation where, barefoot, he must brave freezing temperatures and face the naked truth of his own belief.
