This film documents the Transcendental Meditation (TM) Movement with intimate access to two of TM 's leaders — iconic filmmaker David Lynch and dedicated disciple Bobby Roth. The film follows the movement's metamorphosis following the death of founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. When a spiritual luminary dies, how do his adherents continue? Having himself grown up within the movement, Director Sebastian Lange approaches his subject through an introspective and essayistic lens, seeking to reconcile TM's present-day incarnation with the teachings and practices that shaped his worldview. From star-studded galas hosted by Lynch's Manhattan-based foundation to a perilous cliffside cave in Madhya Pradesh, the film accompanies Lange as he pursues personal spiritual meaning amidst TM's transformative global growth.

A Q&A and meditation with Bob Roth follows.
