Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra is one of the greatest exponents of the classical dance form of Odissi. Through a series of performances, poetry and excerpts from Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra's life, the film travels back to a time in India where dance was looked upon as a form of prayer. During this beautiful period, dance was not looked considered feminine, when men were also keen patrons and teachers of dance.
