Every couple of years, Ram Nath leaves his fields and buffaloes to play the part of human sacrifice in a mysterious purification rite in the Indian Himalaya. During the ritual, Ram Nath transforms from a highland peasant into a powerful redeemer by cutting holes (chidra) in the fabric of society and collecting its sins into a cosmic trap that only he can operate. Chidra follows Ram Nath to explore how men, gods and mediums handle the dangerous substance of actions (karma) at the frontier of the Hindu cultural sphere.
