Kate Winslet and Harvey Keitel star in a powerful, erotic drama that shows nothing is sacred and no-one is immune to the power of seduction.
A beautiful woman goes backpacking in India in search of adventure but finds a guru with more than enlightenment on his mind. When the news reaches her family, they imagine the worst and invent an emergency to get her home, hiring a top American cult-buster to bring her to her senses. But she's not about to give up her new-found Nirvana without a struggle and the de-programming session escalates into an all-out battle of the sexes.
