The film follows Adrianne as she turns to psychedelic medicine to overcome her depression, anxiety and addiction.

Run time: 83 Minutes

After many years of prescription medications failed her, a suicidal woman turns to underground healers to try and overcome her depression, anxiety, and opioid addiction with illegal psychedelic medicine like magic mushrooms and iboga.

Adrianne’s first dose of psilocybin mushrooms catapulted her into an unexpected world of healing where plant medicines are redefining our understanding of mental health and addiction.

“Inspiring, raw… It will open your eyes, and your heart.” (Mark Achbar, director of The Corporation)

The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) Canada envisions a world where psychedelics and marijuana are safely and legally available for beneficial uses, and where research is governed by rigorous scientific evaluation of their risks and benefits.

MAPS Canada furthers its mission by:

  • Providing evidence-based, honest public education about the risks and benefits of psychedelics.
  • Supporting scientific research into many aspects of psychedelics including treatments for medical conditions, neuroscience, creativity and spirituality.
  • Planning, conducting, and publishing scientific research of psychedelic medicines.
  • Developing psychedelics into prescription medicines.
  • Training psychedelic psychotherapists and working to establish a network of treatment centers that can provide this service in the context of professional best practices.
