Garbo's Faces tells the story of Nachiketa Krishnamurti, a boy raised in India by his paternal grandmother who teaches him to speak with snakes. His father, Jiddu, is a well-known Indian mystic who is rarely home. His mother is never discussed.
When Nachiketa is 23, Jiddu reveals to him that his mother is the reclusive Swedish film star, “Harriet Brown” (a Greta Garbo alias).
