Storyline

In the film we follow Jose Gonzalez through intimate and unique scenes shot during work with the long-awaited second album In our nature. In his studio, at home and on tour. Through a diary, based on personal voice recordings we follow his everyday reflections. Thoughts on the photons way from the sun to our eyes, Darwinism, the struggle to write songs. The film gives us an exclusive insight into the, at many times, lonely creative process and of one persons attempt to manage and understand his own existence. The film was shot over a three year period on location in Sweden, Japan, Singapore, United States, South Africa, England, Chile and Argentina.
