This film explores the peaceful transformation of extremism among several world religions, including Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism and Islam, in the small region of Kerala, India.
The film addresses the historical, cultural, philosophical and psychological factors involved in this great example of fostering the heart of humanity...and a culture of conscience in which the concept of non-violence is rooted.
