The young man finds himself in a forgotten world of simplicity and a slow pace, where the only vehicle to take him through life is trust. He studies with the illustrious Dagar family who had preserved the sacred music of India for 20 generations. In his search he encounters Vivek Muni, a young and unusual sage and feels drawn to him by a mysterious force. The young sage takes him as his adopted son on a journey to the mysterious world of the Indian seers and mystics. Dvir learns to speak the Hindi language fluently, and starts to move in India almost unrecognized as a foreigner. All along the way, Dvirs inner world is shaken apart, as he struggles to find that real thing which he came to look for. When the clock shows that he had spent three years and three months in India he feels it is time to go back home- the deep plunge he took into India made in him a bridge between the western and eastern cultures. He returns with a new spirit.
