"In India, Lord Krishna and his consort Radha are the gods of love, lust, and passion. Their sexual freedom and devotion has been an inspiration for generations, placing India at the forefront of sexual innovation and introducing the world to the wonders of the Kama Sutra. Fast forward to the present day, where director Q and his girlfriend are in the midst of a passionate romance, yet are in conflict with an Indian culture that has become sexually repressed. How did this happen?
In this personal journey, Q travels across India to openly discuss love, sex and the evolution of attitudes towards them. His remarkable film exposes their many positive and hypocritical facets, from the Bollywood film industry and the worship of Radha as a powerful woman to arranged marriages, rampant domestic violence, and lack of sexual education. Q champions the freedom to express love and sexual desire as an intrinsic part of being Indian." - Karina Rotenstein, Hot Docs.
