PATHS OF LIFE

Synopsis

In PATHS OF LIFE, three people look back on their lives and give insights into how they have dealt with life crises and what visions they have developed from them. At the same time, through the story of Parzival, a philosopher, artist and therapist shows drug addicted teenagers a symbolic way out of failure into life in order to come back into resonance with themselves and the world.

The world is full of people who have stopped listening to themselves or have listened only to their neighbors to learn what they ought to do, how they ought to behave, and what the values are they should be living for.

Joseph Campbel, «The Power of Myth»
