Based on a true story and shot on location in India, this film beautifully illustrates the power of love, hope and forgiveness to overcome hate.
As the social fabric of life in rural India disintegrates in the late 1990s, journalist Manav Banerjee moves with his pregnant wife to the State of Orissa in hope of a better life and the promise of a lucrative career. When speculation mounts that local Australian missionary Graham Staines is illegally proselytising leprosy patients, Manav agrees to investigate, under cover, for the newspaper.
What he finds is a series of revelations that are difficult to fathom and even harder to explain, and Manav is forced to make a choice between his own ambition and the truth. His actions spark a tragic event that is felt around the world.
