Temple of the Goddess Kamakhya, India. Every year in August, twenty-one Ghoras become possessed by deities and dance to the sound of drums for three days. A deity chooses a man as his vehicle; whatever his age, he will be possessed every year for the rest of his life. During the three days of the Dance, devotees worship the Ghoras and beg for their blessing. When the Dance is over, the Ghoras, abandoned by the deities, go back to their everyday life: work, family and house-caring. What do they feel about the possession they undergo? The film follows two Ghoras in the delicate phase preceding the Dance and explores the way they gradually part from their families and from their regular human condition.
