In 1860s Bengal, a wealthy landowner dreams that his 17-year-old daughter is the incarnation of Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction. He falls to his knees to worship her and she sits numbly as pilgrims begin to appear, begging for her wisdom and blessings and bringing their children to be healed. A graceful depiction of Hinduism and the way it penetrates all aspects of Indian life.
