An old dervish called Baba Aziz is moving toward a destination in a desert. He walks and he is blind, so he has his granddaughter, a seven-year-old girl called Ishtar, to watch over him and guide him. On the way, Ishtar asks questions from Baba Aziz and despite his blindness and old age, he answers Ishtar's questions wisely. From the questions and answers exchanging between them, we realize that Baba Aziz is going to attend a gathering of which neither he nor any of the participants in this gathering is aware of its exact location and time. The Grand Dervish event is held every six years and all of the participants somehow find their way to it with all their soul. In the meantime, these two face different individuals and events. They meet Zayd; a young man who has won the Quran recitation contest and therefore is on the way to the gathering. He is looking for the dervish poet whose poems has facinated him. After Zayd, we get acquainted with the poor young Uthman and also a twin brother, Hassan and Hossein, through him. Hassan is a voluptuary man and Hossein is an idealistic calligrapher; desperate but looking for perfection. Baba Aziz tells Ishtar about a prince that has left his associates and spends his long nights and days near a pond, talking amorously to the reality that he observes in the water of the pond. Eventually, they encounter a young girl called Noor who is on her way to the gathering, looking for her father who is a poet. Baba Aziz, Ishtar, Prince, Zayd, Noor, Hassan, Hossein, and Othman arrive at the gathering. A loop of dervishes is rotating as if this move takes them to the stars. Baba Aziz is among the dervishes.
