    • Synopsis
    • Suraj Baba is a sadhu, a Hindu holy man. He has renounced to earthly goods and has shut himself away to live in a cave in the heart of the Himalayas at 10,000 feet above sea level. After eight years of isolation and meditation, he takes the risk of exposing himself to the world once more. Before he confirms his vows to become an ascetic monk after a pilgrimage of many months, Suraj decides to join the rest of sadhus during the Kumbh Mela celebration, which gathers more than 70 million pilgrims every 12 years. Suraj’s sincerity during his journey of initiation turns the Indian mysticism into a secondary theme of the movie. He is a wise man that doesn’t want to be wise any more.
