Drawing on the Talim Primary Four Book – a Fountain of Stories, the film focuses on the first part of the journey and draws parallels with the role of Mawlana Hazar Imam as our Guiding Light. The stories feature actors from the global Jamat and are interspersed with moving recitations of Ismaili devotional literature (Ginans and Qasidas) and beautiful visual animations.
