If there was a place for death, it would be Mexico. And nowhere is life as vibrant as in India, the country of rebirth. The film is not a travelogue but deals with the big concepts in life. Love and pain, fear and loneliness, fulfillment and happiness, death and birth interweave to create a metaphorical love story spanning half the globe.
The anonymous man is drawn to Mexico, his girlfriend Judith to India. They have just split up and are now trying to escape their joint past, caught in the expectations of a clearly defined yet uncertain future.
