The film's Logline says, "The filmmaker manages to sort out the ultimate pop guru of the century's strict protocol to try and find out if enlightenment really exists."
10 minutes of the film, which is still in the production stage, will be screened at Cannes Film Festival’s Doc Corner section of Marche Du Film during its 50th anniversary.
