    'A lot of people lose their way in India . . . it's a country specially made for that.'

    Amid the backstreets, brothels and faded hotels of Bombay, Madras and the old Portuguese port of Goa, a man searches for his lost friend. Xavier has been missing for a year, and the only clues to his disappearance lie with an overworked doctor, a young prostitute and the leader of a strange religious order.

    Dreamlike, elusive and profoundly disquieting, Indian Nocturne calls into question the very nature of identity.
