Pierre is a young man who gives up all worldly temptations in his search to find God and inner peace. He has decided to embark on a journey of spiritual fulfillment after experiencing the sordid nightlife in Paris. A pregnant girl from Denmark becomes his friend, but Pierre shuts himself off from her and the rest of the world to read books on religion and contemplate the great mysteries of life. This doesn't prevent him from experiencing erotic hallucinations and dreams. He searches for spiritual enlightenment and purpose and develops a belief in reincarnation in his quest to become one with the universal truths sought by humankind since the beginning of time.
