Episode Description:

A 13x52 min documentary series that chronicles a train voyage from the East to the West, through fast-changing societies, along the birthplaces of five world religions. The series tackles some of the great questions of today’s world. How do people cope with continuing globalization? Is it a threat or an opportunity? We meet local people on and off the train, on this epic journey of discovery, passing through many towns and villages unknown in the West on this 20,000 kilometre "road movie". The relaxed anonymity of a train proves to be a perfect setting for travelers to reveal perspectives on their world, as they learn to cope with the relentless battle to preserve unique religions and traditions in the face of pervasive globalization, consumerism and prescribed western lifestyle.

Episode Synopsis:
In this film the train goes from Rameswaram past Bombay, Ahmedabad and Delhi to Amritsar and the Pakistani border. In the train there are discussions with travellers from several religions. How do they put up with each other? Who is behind the conflicts? What is the role of religion in modernisation? Outside of the train portraits of a Syrian-orthodox community in Kerala, the mayor of Ahmedabad who is teaching Hindus and Muslims to live side by side after a bloody conflict, and a Hindu-Muslim couple in Bombay that publishes a magazine on religious conflict. At the end of the film, there are talks with travellers about a more open world aboard the Samjautha Express, the Friendship Express, on its way to Pakistan, once India’s archenemy.
