Journalist and filmmaker Gotham Chopra embarks on a road trip with his father, Deepak Chopra, to reconcile the spiritual icon with the real man known to his family. From devoted disciplines that range from Lady Gaga to soul searchers in the red rock deserts of Sedona, Gotham begins to paint a raw portrait of his dad that only a son can create. The films travels across the planet chronicling colorful Deepak activities - from a traditional monk ordainment in Thailand to a literal decoding of ancient family registers in rural India. Ultimately what emerges is a beautiful and honest picture of a Deepak that while reminiscent of other popularized India gurus, is more dad than demigod, searching for answers in the most unlikely places, while taking a deeper plunge into the meaning of indentity itself.
“In Gotham's feature directorial debut...the filmmaker and journalist attempts to separate the man from myth by following him around the world for nearly a year. The resulting documentary is a remarkably honest portrait of Deepak, as seen through the eyes of someone who knows him best.”—Indiewire
“East and West, mind and body, science and spirit: Chopra's smiling, ever more confident face has become an icon of the hope that the world is entering a new age of synthesis and understanding where all such rifts will become mere memories.”—Time Magazine
