"KUMARE" -- (NR) Sri Kumare is an enlightened guru from the East who has come to America to spread his teachings. After three months in Phoenix, Kumare has found a group of devoted students who embrace him as a true spiritual teacher. But beneath his long beard, Kumare has a secret he is about to unveil to his disciples. He is really Vikram Gandhi, an American filmmaker from New Jersey who wanted to see if he could transform himself into a guru and build a following of real people. Now, he is conflicted -- can he unveil the truth to these disciples with whom he has spent so much time, and who now look to him for guidance?
