Can a sacred plant medicine from the Amazon region heal our minds and spirits? In the heart of a South American jungle, a naturopathic doctor and an accountant experience life-altering realizations when they drink a psychoactive ayahuasca brew. The primary component of this brew is dimethyltryptamine (DMT), and it is known for its powerful hallucinogenic properties, similar to LSD. This award-winning documentary explores the mystery of ayahuasca shamanism, offering insights into the nature of spirituality, mystical experience, and mental health benefits discovered through an expanded state of consciousness.

Is ayahuasca a doorway to direct knowledge of the divine or a path that leads to psychological trauma? Can the use of ayahuasca ceremonies combat modern addictions to drugs and alcohol, or is ayahuasca itself a possible substance of abuse? Some call it a medicine, others a sacrament; the Amazonian shamans say it is simply a “plant teacher” that tells you what you need to know. Discover the profound effects of ayahuasca.
