This is the story of a woman who, at a certain point of her life, leaves everything behind to follow a call towards the unknown, carrying with her only her unshakable faith and her love for the poorest of the poor, the dying people abandoned on the road, the children without parents and the hungry humanity.
From one she became many, hundreds, thousands who wanted to follow in her holy path. She conquered even the priests of the Kali mandir who saw in her the reincarnation of the true ‘mother’. She has been able to celebrate life in all creatures especially in those most neglected and less considered by society. The dance composition is an humble tribute to her, Who else she could be if not Mother Theresa?
