What, if anything, can be found that is beautiful and enriching in places teetering on the edge of apocalypse? Velcrow Ripper set out on a unique pilgrimage. Visiting the "Ground Zeros" of the planet, he asks if it's possible to fi nd hope in the darkest moments of human history. Ripper travels to the minefi elds of Cambodia; war-torn Afghanistan; the toxic wasteland of Bhopal; post- 9/11 New York; Bosnia; Hiroshima; Israel and Palestine. This powerful documentary captures his fi ve-year odyssey to discover if humanity can transform the "scared" into the "sacred." Its stunning footage, haunting memories, engaging, fi rst- person narration, inspirational stories and evocative soundscape create an exquisite portrait of a search for meaning in times of turmoil.
