The eight hundred and sixty-four lines of the Qissa-i Sanjan constitute the traditional account of the flight of the ancestors of the Indian Parsis, who abandoned almost everything that was dear to them in pursuit of their pure and ancient Faith : Zoroastrianism.
They sought refuge on the western shores of India.
The text was written in 1600 AD where as the Zoroastrians settled in Sanjan between the 8th and 10 th century AD.
In the Story of Sanjan, it appears that the Zoroastrians must have had some contact with Gujarat prior to their journey there.
This has prompted speculations that the Zoroastrians of the story were not in fact the first migrants.
The first part of the documentary narrates the story of the Zoroastrian journey from Persia to India and how the Parsi communities flourished and continued practising their religion and customs.
