A materially successful young man, riddled with anxiety embarks on a world-wide journey of self-inquiry. From the streets of NY, to the stillness of the Ganges, and deep into the jungles of Peru, he immerses himself in meditation, self-inquiry, and plant medicine whilst conversing with top experts like Russell Brand, Alex Grey, Graham Hancock, Sharon Salzberg, Joseph Goldstein, Rupert Spira and Sri Prem Baba to find the root cause of the problem and learn how to finally find freedom from his crippling anxiety. He discovers the beauty and power that lies within each of us, if we are willing to go there.
