'Aya: Awakenings' is an experiential journey into the world and visions of Ayahuasca, a powerful plant medicine from the Amazon which is has been utilized traditionally for millennia but has only recently been discovered by the modern world. Adapted from the cult book 'Aya: A Shamanic Odyssey by Rak Razam, the documentary follows Razam as he sets out to document the booming business of Amazonian shamanism in the 21st century. Razam quickly finds himself caught up in a culture clash between the old world and the new. Braving a gringo trail of the soul, he uncovers a movement of spiritual tourists coming from the west for a direct experience with the multi dimensional realities ayahuasca shamanism reportedly connects one with.
