The film begins with the retired and fatally ill Terzani moving to a remote house in Tuscany with his wife Angela, since he wants do die in his native land. He asks his son Folco, who is living in New York, to join him in Italy. Once Folco has arrived, Terzani recount his life story – from his youth in Florence, spanning the three decades he worked in Asia up to the time when he was diagnosed with cancer and spent three years with a sage in the Himalayas, learning to accept death.
