Raju’s first stop after his release from prison is the barber’s shop. Then he decides to take refuge in an abandoned temple. Raju used to be India’s most corrupt tourist guide, but now a peasant mistakes him for a holy man. Gradually he begins to play the part. He succeeds so well that God himself intervenes to put Raju’s new holiness to the test.
