Storyline

Filmed over the period of five years; a rare and unique cinematic observation by artist and award winning filmmaker who has been filming this deeply moving portrait of a Holy man Nagnath Baba. Since five years, Baba has been on hunger strike in the city of Varanasi to save the India's most sacred river Ganga. Year after year, his body crumbles. He is haunted by both dreams and nightmares. Life continues to flow around his emaciated body and his temple; prayers and rituals are the only food for his starvation. His sacred existence takes surreal shape. Then on the 2183rd day Baba's hunger strike takes his life. The river Ganga continues to flow -unchanged and unsaved. Expressionism and poetry meet to create a sublime journey of an unusual soul.
