Viewers are invited to make a journey from one to the other by rail, stopping on the way to experience a Rajah's tiger hunt, Indian village life, the burning ghats of Benares, the erotic temple sculpture of Khajavao and the cut-off Anglo-Indian community of railway workers at Asansol, an important junction near Calcutta.
