Synopsis:

Feeling ill at ease with contemporary life, James leaves the teeming cities behind and sets out on a pilgrimage across rural Japan, in search of wisdom. During his travels he gets lost in a wild wood and meets a young Japanese farmer who is trying to live a new kind of life. James is inspired by him and lets this man teach him to trust nature and the truths within. 

Seven years later James decides he must return to Japan to learn the truth: has the farmer succeeded, or are we doomed to live out our lives at war with each other and the environment? Based on a true story, this is a life-changing tale of friendship, love and spirituality.
