Synopsis

Can the experience of connecting with nature – physically, mentally, and spiritually – transform us? Filmed by award-winning photographer Pete McBride, this film follows physicist and author, Marcelo Gleiser and Navajo entrepreneur, Len Necefer, as they try in different but surprisingly complementary ways, to re-engage with nature and explore its healing potential.
