The advent of technology has turned our lives into a race where we are all running without pausing, stopping, or breathing. This mechanical lifestyle has led to a steep rise in stress, anxiety and depression across the globe.
Today, World Health Organization states that stress, anxiety and depression are the leading causes of disability worldwide, and major contributors to the overall global burden of disease.
With chemical medicines failing to provide holistic well-being, this documentary explores an alternative world of healing and wellness through sound and music as medicine and how it can impact global transformation.
