An audience favorite at the Vancouver Film Festival and Amsterdam Documentary Festival, this film continues the quest for a fusion between spirituality and activitism previously explored in director Velcrow Ripper's award-winning 2005 documentary SCAREDSACRED. The 2006 murder of friend and filmmaker Brad Will in protest-torn Oaxaca, Mexico, is the impetus for Ripper's journey, which takes him to "ground zeros" of spiritual activism around the world, including Robben Island, South Africa; Andrah, India; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; and South Central Los Angeles, where a months-long protest against the razing of a vital community garden provides a highly dramatic spine for the wide-ranging film.
