Our film reveals the other face of Pakistan.Lured by mystic music of Nusrat we set out for journey in his footsteps, fascinated by the world where consciousness and existence are determined by a deep faith in God.We find the world of magic, ghosts, and spiritual music.We are looking for a great artist Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, who in addition to a hypnotic voice gave to the world a profound message of spirituality over religions. With every kilometer of the journey we get to know Nusrat closer. “When he sang, he exploded among the stars” – says one of his lover. Gradually built Nusrat image becomes the structure of the film. The spirit of the Master leads us to the remotest corners of the Indus Valley – the cradle of world music. "The essence of this journey is the journey to one God, which is common to all people".
