Three Australian families make the confronting pilgrimage to the largest and oldest religious festival on earth, the Maha Kumbh Mela, on the banks of India's sacred river, the Ganges. It's an ancient event with a modern Australian twist as we follow a two devout Hindu families and one non-Hindu family making the sacred pilgrimage, each with their own objectives. The Misras want their adult children to reconnect with traditional Indian culture. Pushpa Choudhari wants her teenagers to visit relatives and experience the Holy Dip amidst unbelievable crowds, as she did when growing up in Allahabad. The Turner family want to take their kids on a cultural adventure, build a boat and meet people by rowing Pilgrims around the Ganges.
Each family fulfils their dream, and reflects thoughtfully on the spirit of modern Hinduism as expressed in this most ancient Holy Festival.
