Cut the pills - take a breath!

Neuroscientist Professor Richard Davidson launches an unusual experiment: He wants to teach a group of war veterans and children with ADHD meditation and yoga. His scientific goal is to study the physical effect of these exercises on the human brain with an aim to replace medication. During the experiment we meet the ex-interrogator Steve and the former battalion leader Rich. Both suffer from PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder) after their time in Afghanistan and Iraq. We also follow Will and his friends in the kindergarten working with the same methods of meditation as the war veterans.
