In 15th-century North India, the mystic weaver Kabir spoke his poems in the marketplace, his spirituality firmly grounded in the public square. 600 years after his time, Kabir is found in both spaces â€“ sacred and secular. This film interweaves his deification by the Kabir Panth sect with his secular appropriation by the social activist group Eklavya. The story unfolds through the life of Prahlad Tipanya, a Dalit singer whose participation in both domains, begins to raise difficult questions for him about ritual and organized religion.
