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, almost grudgingly, he begins to play the part.
He succeeds so well that God himself intervenes to put Raju's new holiness to the test.
