When Gopal, the carefree prince of Goloka, sees his teacher burst into flames and the many-armed Virabhadra rampage through the sacred Temple of Durga, he is convinced the gods have turned the universe inside out. He must learn to accept responsibility and perform a vidhi, a test beyond imagination. But in order to survive, he must secure help from a centuries-old mystic named Vyasa and discover the elusive city of Nine Gates.
