58 min.DK/Documentary

Henrik, a Danish war veteran, returns to Denmark with post-traumatic stress syndrome after his second deployment in Afghanistan. After various failed treatment attempts he moves deep into the Amazon jungle trying to cure himself with plant medicine, including the world’s most halogenic drink, Ayahuasca. The film follows Henrik’s fight in the jungle over three years, offering a close-up of a broken human being, a man let down by the same society he tried to protect, on a journey that doesn’t cure him the way he had hoped.
