Two stories intertwine over time. In the present, Felix, who
teaches Geography in a detention centre, stumbles upon
a book that dazzles him. In the past, Rabindranath Tagore,
Bengali poet and author of the book that has come to Felix,
arrives in Argentina and is hosted by writer Victoria Ocampo. A
deep, platonic bond develops between the two cultural figures
and Victoria becomes Tagore’s distant muse. While Felix is
increasingly obsessed with the story of the Indian poet and
the Argentinian writer, he gains an insight into the intellectual
and spiritual notions on which Tagore’s revolutionary school in
India was founded. Felix decides to visit India and experience
for himself the teaching methods that Tagore dreamed of for
all mankind
