An artist tries to connect with life's deeper meaning through his paintings, seeking transcendent visions and spiritual awareness with the aid of a Native American shaman, in the inspiring and healing red rock country of Sedona, Arizona. The artist is Paul Davids, the well-known painter and writer/director of many films with thought-provoking themes such as "Jesus in India," "Timothy Leary's Dead," "Starry Night," "Roswell," "The Sci-Fi Boys," and "Before We Say Goodbye." Following the death of his father, Dr. Jules Davids (a noted Georgetown University Professor who assisted John F. Kennedy on the book PROFILES IN COURAGE and is acknowledged in JFK's Preface), Paul sought the aid of a shaman to help him overcome his grief. The shaman took him to Sedona "energy points" to experience the consciousness of the shaman's Native American ancestors, inspiring the creation of oil paintings that became Paul Davids' Sedona Summer Series. The artist and the shaman together explore mysteries of spiritual evolution and awakening, faith, and some possibilities of reincarnation. The film is filled with music, art, beauty and native-American wisdom, a moving tribute to our loved ones who have passed away. Bruce Fessier of The Desert Sun writes: "Thumbs up. A very intimate film... a journey of self-discovery..."
