Short description


Adventure Documentary Music

In Hindi, Sâdhu means he who is in search of truth. To this end, the bespectacled sâdhu Suraj Baba has spent eight years at 3200 meters in a cave at the source of the Ganges. He sings (in English) and accompanies himself on the guitar, stokes a wood fire, makes bread, prays and performs his ablutions. But his life is far from idyllic, because he is all alone, with insupportable moments of boredom, solitude, doubt and frustration: peace is hard to find. And so he decides to go on a pilgrimage to Kumbhamela. After at first rejoicing at being in the company of others, he soon realizes he can't have anyone imposing a code of conduct on him. In search of himself, he makes his way to the sacred lakes...
