The film presents the work of the research & therapy center Takiwasi, based in the High Amazon region of Peru. Founded in 1986 by French, Peruvian and Japanese doctors, Takiwasi uses Traditional Amazonian Medicine combined with Western psychotherapy to achieve a high success rate in the treatment of severe drug addiction, depression and other psychological ailments. Patients from around the globe as well as from the local community seek the center's services. Takiwasi relies on a multinational staff of Western-trained doctors, psychologists, molecular biologists and ethnobotanists as well as traditional healers from around the region which is notorious for producing some of the greatest curanderos of the Amazon. The center has developed a unique approach of integration and articulation of Western science and traditional methods to produce a therapeutic protocol focused on long term, sustainable results for its patients.
