'Leap of Faith' is the story of B.K.S. Iyengar's life. He is a Yogi, whose name is synonymous with precision and perfection in Yoga. 'Leap of Faith' is a saga of courage and faith, of chance meetings on chosen paths, of perseverance in the face of insurmountable hurdles, of the triumph of the human spirit and of its union (yoga) with the divine consciousness.

This Film spans 9 decades of Guruji's life and over 70 years of his practices and teachings. It shows him as Guru, Teacher, Husband, Father and Shishya - a multifaceted personality.
The story is narrated by the internationally acclaimed actor Naseeruddin Shah, an Iyengar yoga student himself. The film contains new and extensive footage of Guruji's practices, teaching, interviews and daily life style.

This helps to reveal the simple man behind such a complex and towering personality. The film is an endeavor to capture the essence of the man behind the phenomenon.
It also contains fantastic early footage of his life as well as recreated scenes of his early childhood. Extensive research has gone into the making of this classic.
