Synopsis: Herein lies the ideological struggle of two individuals. Behind the camera stands Kate Churchill, a Boston-based documentarian with a rock-solid confidence in the transformative power of yoga; her subject, however -- Manhattan journalist Nick Rosen -- espouses deep-seated skepticism and resistance to yoga as a system of thought and physio-spiritual regeneration. Responding to a challenge by Churchill, Rosen undertakes an on-camera investigation of yoga, but in lieu of becoming an instant convert as one might expect, he begins to uncover manifold inconsistencies and contradictions that distance him from the center of it. The filmmaker and her subject thus experience a rocky and multi-layered conflict of beliefs, identities, and lifestyles. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
