This film offers an in-depth look at the Tantrik Aghori, holy seekers of Northern India who are the living disciples of the great Guru Gorakh Nath. In their search for the One amongst the many, the Naths believe only a true guru can guide them through the paradoxes of human life, as they search for a centre where nothing must exist.
