Ganesh Ramseyor is a devout Hindu living with his wife in Trinidad in 1940. He wants to be a writer and yearns to spread Hinduism by encouraging people to embrace it. However, he meets with little success in his written endeavors, so he tries instead to be a miracle man and is astonished when this actually works. He feels he is doing good, and he derives so much satisfaction from it that he doesn't charge the people who flock to see him. Still, he's not even sure he really believes he has these powers. How long will this fame last?
