As a youth, the young Indian Siddhartha meets the Buddha but cannot be content with a disciples role: he must work out his own destiny and solve his own doubt — a tortuous road that carries him through the sensuality of a love affair with the beautiful courtesan Kamala, the temptation of success and riches, the heartache of struggle with his own son, to final renunciation and self-knowledge.
