Bengaluru International Film Festival - BIFFES

Synopsis

Ramji, a humble iron-smith from a small village, is a devotee of Lord Vitthal. For years he has followed the Waarkari (a devotional sect) tradition of going on a pilgrimage with thousands of other devotees. His world comes crashing down after his only son drowns in a flooding river. Ramji is not only sad but also angry at God. He and his friends are trying to make sense of the tragedy. One rainy night, unfolds a tale of grief and ecstasy - where the seeming opposites just collapse and dissolve into the oneness of being. Life offers Ramji a chance to ‘see’ the non-duality of birth and death, and make peace with his grief.
