People who have never had addiction or been around a loved one who has gone through addiction may find this documentary to be "an excuse to get high," but there is a very serious opiate problem in North America and traditional methods have not worked. This film explores one woman's journey to healing. As a person who was in a relationship with an addict, I have seen the worst, unimaginable sides of someone who is on the edge of self-destruction. Luckily, they ultimately got out of it, but recovery is just longer time between relapse and a film like this gives an option that has yet to be explored to its full extent in America. I'm very hopeful watching this film that people will have an alternative option that actually works. Addiction is just a response effect of trauma and families who have no other options left will do anything to help the person they love. Not everyone is so lucky, but again, I am hopeful, this will be another resource.

What a profound story of healing! Following Adrienne through addiction and then through her experiences with the medicines in such a raw way was a really unique perspective for viewers. And her triumph at the end in helping other people find the same healing..just wow. Such a beautiful look at the potential that Earth has to offer us!

The tremendous power of mushrooms have been known for millennia and now you can see their miraculous effects in a modern setting so in need of healing. Powerful and must see!
