Summary Darshan, the embrace is a powerful and moving look at Amma, one of India's most celebrated Mahatmas (spiritual guides). Her fight for peace, and campaigns against poverty and illiteracy earned her the Gandhi king Prize in 2002. Known as " the hugging saint" for her eager embrace, for the first time Amma has allowed director Jan Kounen to document her passionate journey as she travels across India from Jaipur to Calcutta, changing her country, and our world, one embrace at a time. -- Container.
