Synopsis: Filmed over the course of India’s 2013 monsoon season in ultra high definition 4K, the filmmakers chased the monsoon on its annual journey from the southern state of Kerala, , to India's north-eastern state of Meghalaya. Along the way, they meet a remarkable group of individuals whose lives are in different ways entwined with the phenomenon that some call 'the soul of India'. A cinematic journey into the terrain where nature, science, belief and wonder converge in one of the most astonishing and breathtaking landscapes on earth. Monsoon is a film that captures the timelessness and rich human drama of our engagement with the natural world.
