Next Exit Nirwana

5.000 gurus, 200.000 sadhus, millions of pilgrims and beggars! Every 12 years they meet in a salutary place on the Ganges. There one finds teaching, praying, singing, dancing, bathing and wondering. Who are these people who attract millions of pilgrims and curios from all over the world? Are they wise, holy, enligthened or just crazy? The film presents the everyday culture of India against the backdrop of the kumbh Mela, the biggest festival of Hinduism.
