When a spiritual leader dies, how does a movement continue? An introspective look at how the Transcendental Meditation has metamorphosed into something other, compared to the vision of its founder, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. From the concrete towers of Manhattan, to the cornfields of Iowa, to the banks of the Ganges and a remote cave in the Amarkantak forest, accompanied by two charismatic Movement’s new leaders (David Lynch and dedicated disciple Bobby Roth), the documentary follows the questioning of the original spiritual values.
