PLOT SUMMARY: RYAN, an intellectual grad-student joins the Peace Corps on an individual quest for purpose. As an angst-driven vegan living in a modern society, Ryan confronts the stark reality of the real world, existing far outside the limits of his comforts. The banality of his small role in a structured institution soon deflates his romantic vision of saving the world. After meeting a local missionary named ANGIE, he leaves the Peace Corps and joins her church group to assist in food sustainability. Ryan finds purpose and fulfillment until confronted with mysterious presence which sends him on a collision course with nature and his own existence.
