Resurrecting Hassan traces the lives of the Hartings, a blind Montreal family of three who make their living singing in the city's subway stations. The Hartings lost their only sighted child Hassan in a tragic drowning accident, and have since turned to the teachings of Russian mystic Grigory Grabovoy, hoping to resurrect their son.

Resurrecting Hassan is an exploration of this family's legacy of grief, tragedy and abuse; the film follows them on their path to redemption.
