Agnes, the daughter of the Hindu God Indra, is sent to earth to observe humanity and discern if the grievances of man are well-founded. In her search for truth, she marries a lawyer, has a child, but quickly tires of the tedium of daily existence. Disillusioned by her marriage, she sets off in pursuit of her "higher duty", travelling amidst the destinies of many different people until her meeting with a poet brings her sacred odyssey to an end. Dreamplay takes the central philosophical points of August Strindberg's classic play and adapts them to the language of film.
