He is an atheist, she is a believer. They decide to get married and spend their honeymoon in India. During the train journey, they speak about religion and God…

"The story is not so important always. For me the power of cinema lies in its ability to create a universe based on image and sound…Viewing Indian philosophy from two contrasting viewpoints, though I personally look at India from the positive angle, I am trying to go beyond India as I seek to talk about the philosophy of the universe and the meaning of life. I hope this film can help the viewer to understand what the soul of India is." Mohsen Makhmalbaf
