Abstract:

A train stops at a railway station, and a young woman jumps off. She has wild hair, sloppy clothes, a distracted air. The sudden violence of what happens next leaves the other passengers gasping ... The train terminates at Jarmuli, a temple town by the sea. Here, among pilgrims, priests and ashrams, three old women disembark - only to encounter the girl once again. What is someone like her doing in this remote place? Over the next five days, the old women live out their long-planned dream of a holiday together; their temple guide finds ecstasy in forbidden love; and the girl is joined by a photographer battling his own demons. As the lives of these disparate people overlap and collide, Jarmuli is revealed as a place with a long, dark past that transforms all who encounter it ...
