Mirabai is a cultural icon and her images and stories swamp our popular culture. The conflicts expressed in her poetry however, do not always tally with these popularly held belief. The film explores some of these contradictions. We discover some alternate traditions of Mira and a personal connection is formed with this "Mystic Saint", who lived and died 500 years ago. We travel from the towns and villages of Rajasthan to the vast desert, in search of Mira. All the characters we meet have been living with Mira in different ways and in the telling of her story,they often tell us their own. Sometimes there are more than two sides to a story; sometimes there are a hundred. Some of the themes the film explore are relativity of history, validity of the personal in religion. And always there is Mira, singing for us in various voices.
