Tanja Stiefenhofer emigrated from Germany to India 25 years ago. In the Indian Himalayan Region, she found the spiritual place Kalishila, where she met a 90 year old yogi who had dedicated his life to the worship of Kali. The film is about how Tanja left her home country and adopted a new culture and religion, in spite of the misogynistic spiritual life in a strict order – about how Tanja Stiefenhofer became Saraswati giri.
