In 2007, the film was one of five nominated for "Best Documentary" in the Swiss Film Prize, though the prize was taken by Das kurze Leben des José Antonio Gutierrez.
The film focuses on the aftermath of the Hippie migration to Asia, specifically documenting the lives of six Hippies who chose to remain in India: Cesare from Italy, Erica and Gillian from South Africa, Hanspeter from Switzerland, Meera from Belgium and Robert from the Netherlands. No longer in their 20s, they are leading the lives of a traditional yogi and a female meditator in retreat, a painter with a local wife and children, designers of beach clothing in Goa, and a farmer who hunts and cares for his cows in the Himalayas.
