A feature length documentary sharing Rick Doblin's 45 year journey to become a psychedelic psychotherapist. As a young counter-culture college student, Rick Doblin decided to become a psychedelic psychotherapist, but first he would have to take on the Federal Government's drug policy. To do so, Rick transformed himself into a Harvard Kennedy School Phd grad, and went on to raise over 30 million dollars to fund FDA approved clinical research via his non-profit MAPS.org. Decades later, as MAPs groundbreaking work using MDMA assisted therapy to treat chronic PTSD in Veterans enters Phase 3 of clinical trials, MDMA (Ecstacy) is on track to become a legal prescription drug and Rick's psychedelic vision is close to becoming a reality that could have life-changing impact.
A surreal love triangle, with music by Ben Harper. Stop motion & 2D hand-drawn animation.
