A filmmaker's spiritual journey to the bottom of the top.

A filmmaker sets out to document his journey to India and Nepal while he attempts to find his spirituality, whatever that may mean. Over the next month, with his equipment strapped to his back, he travels through India to the River Ganges, and then to the Himalayas, where he begins a trek to the 18,000 foot high Everest Base Camp.

Along the way he tries to cope with both the physical demands of his journey and the emotional distress of finding peace while filming his trek. He battles with his sense of self in the presence of a zen monk who seeks to challenge his way of thinking. The filmmaker must balance keeping one eye in the lens of his camera, and the other on his own journey. Because without either, there will be no film.

“Reality is what we take to be true.

What we take to be true is what we believe.

What we believe is based upon our perceptions.

What we perceive depends upon what we look for.

What we look for depends on what we think.

What we think depends on what we perceive.

What we perceive determines what we believe.

What we believe determines what we take to be true.

What we take to be true is our reality.”

-David Bohm
