Nikhil, a man from London comes to India to seek peace of mind like many other foreigners. It may sound astonishing to people but yes he finds peace. The preaching of Guru influences his life like never before. Along with him, there are many others in the journey to find their own better selves and connect with the Divine. Few return back midway, few called them mad but the ones who stayed till the end knew the real meaning and purpose of life. They walked away from worldly pleasures and realized that there was a life possible without them.
