Episode Info

This film follows up on the spiritual truths pursued and examined in author Rodger Kamenetz's best-seller of the same title.

The film delves deeper into the role that intense personal suffering plays in helping people discover human truths rarely understood by others. The New England Film and Video Festival bestowed its Outstanding Personal Vision Award on this program.
