A film about the Seers of Kerala. Vipin Vijay wanted to make a very personal film about the oracle séances, based on the influence of the diaries of his grandfather, who was himself a Seer. The opulent substance and structure of the oracle séances at the temple, an old ritual, is filled with dance, narrative and ritual cleansing. The film investigates personal religious experience, philosophy, theatrical and collective ecstasy and the functions that all these have in the community as a whole.
