Siddhartha was born and was able to walk and talk within a matter of minutes. Siddhartha's mother had a painless birth and was able to see lotus flower grow in his footsteps. It was said that he will become a great saviour.
Siddhartha wonders around the palace and suddenly hears music. He follows the sound and was mesmorized by it. The thought of the outside world came to him and he decided he wanted to go and see what's outside of the palace.
Once exiting the palace, Siddhartha, who has little experience of the outside world, is exposed to the four passing sights. The charioteer explains to him that there are those who experience old age, sickness, death, and suffering. He is shocked and confused about the information.
Siddhartha talks to his dad about the people that caught his attention outside of the palace. He is angry his father hid the knowledge of pain and suffering and thinks that he needs to find an end to it. His father does not like the idea, but Siddhartha goes off.
At night when everyone is asleep, he says goodbye to his wife and their newborn child before running off and wakes up the charioteer. Both Siddhartha and the charioteer ride off at sunrise with Siddhartha beginning to find enlightenment.
