Summary A documentary film about the prayer ritual jagraan, made to the deity Pabuji, a guardian of livestock, as it is performed by folk musicians in Rajasthan. The musicians who perform the jaagran, known as bhopas, are losing their traditional patrons, the nomadic herders of livestock known as Raikas, and the remaining bhopas are forced more and more to perform for foreign and Indian tourists who know little about their craft.
