Francis has invited his brothers, Jack and Peter to join him on a train trip for a spiritual quest through India.

The brothers have been estranged since their father's sudden death, and each is now embroiled in his own personal drama.

Jack is being toyed with by his two-timing girlfriend, Peter's wife is about to give birth, and Francis recently survived a car crash that nearly killed him.

As the train chugs its way across India, the brothers try to reconnect, but mainly end up arguing and sharing pharmaceuticals.

Francis admits that the real reason he lured them there is because he wants them to visit their mother, who is living in a convent in the Himalayas.

Peter and Jack are none too pleased with this plan, and immediately want to go home. The trip hits another snag when they are kicked off the train for a series of offenses.

Stranded with their mountain of matching luggage, Peter and Jack are now insistent upon leaving. However, they suddenly find themselves brought together by an deadly accident involving some Indian children.

The tragedy unites them, and they decide to continue on to their mother. Their visit with her proves revelatory, and they begin their journey homeward free of both their literal and metaphorical baggage.

This movie is rated R for language.
