India is a well-known hub for Westerners seeking a spiritual path. They do yoga, meditation, and convert to other religions. The Western media has speculated that these people are weak individuals; seduced by a novel culture, and brainwashed by false ideals. But is it really so simple? Through the lives of three people who have been in India for a while, 'Where the Darkness Has to Run' examines the secret motivations of people who leave their lives to embrace spirituality. Have they found the meaning of life, or are they escaping from a dark past? Is spirituality a calling, or an excuse to run away?
