1965: America is in turmoil. Unprecedented introspection and questioning of societal norms roil the country.

Prabhupada, an unassuming 70-year-old Swami from India, arrives in New York City alone and without support or money. He carries only the ancient scriptures he has translated, and the firm faith in his teacher’s request: “offer spiritual wisdom to the people of the world!

Suddenly thrust into the raging counterculture movement, Prabhupada speaks to what he sees as the world’s real need, which is not necessarily satisfied by political or social revolutions, but by a revolution of consciousness.
