A tale of love, friendship, greed, hate and loyalty.
A 14 year old boy traveling from the US to India to meet his dad for the very first time. The story of MAYA deals with the adventure, family drama and animal love. All in one. Cinematography, story, music and direction contribute to this saga of a Christian boy befriending a Hindu boy. Their friendship and companionship make them able to deliver their promise which they had made to a dying Hindu priest.The promise was about taking MAYA- the mother elephant and her white baby elephant to a far way temple. In the face of utmost greed and hardships, the journey of these two adolescents unravels. India looks beautiful.Following the release of the film ,in 1966-67 NBC made a 26 episode serial of MAYA which ran on prime time. There were comic book series of MAYA printed as well.
