Having spent days sitting in a bustling marketplace, a famished beggar finds that everyone turns a blind eye to the bowl he clutches onto, aching to receive a few coins or a piece of bread. The beggar is dismayed at the state of affairs, but soon something stirs his imagination. He observes a man, appearing to be a religious mendicant, lure credulous passers-by into giving him money in exchange for blessings and chants. Struck by this incident, the beggar decides to don a religious garb, and almost instantly sees things change for the better. He is met with new respect, and the bowl overflows with money. As his attire gets grander, so does the yield of his religious tactics. Soon enough, owing to his growing influence, he has enough followers to establish his own religion, Spinnism, operating on its own Code of Conduct. He becomes a master of conning common-folk and, quite literally, makes them spin to his tunes. With an ever-growing yield, there is no end to his megalomania. He takes to exploiting women and gains the attention of paparazzi engrossed in every action of his. In this game of power, sex, and money, he is convinced that he is invincible. The film ends with a painting of him, forever embedded on the walls of history.
