Amidst the chaos of Mumbai, India, in the district of Chowpatty, an unlikely community of doctors, businessmen and monks dedicate their lives to spiritual devotion.
Rising daily before dawn, chanting sanksrit mantras, and performing ritualistic ceremonies, they fight to keep an ancient culture alive in an India increasingly devote to pursuit of the “American Dream.”
This hour-long documentary masterfully crafts rich color and exotic imagery into a story of two seekers who find their common truth within this timeless spiritual culture.
Disenchanted with the materialistic west, a young American filmmaker, Arjuna Parker, venture to India searching for the deeper truth about himself, the universe and God.
He enters the Radha Gopinatha temple to witness the ancient practices and to document his time with the devotees in this vibrant spiritual community.
Arjuna is befriended by Radhanath Swami, one of the temple’s founders, who had come to India a generation earlier on a similar spiritual quest.
In the modern metropolis of Mumbai, Radhanath Swami met his guru, the great Vaishnava saint A.
Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
