Synopsis

Thousands of post-traumatic syndrome victims live in Israel, which in recent years has been promoting an innovative treatment. MDMA, the active agent in the party drug Ecstasy, has been defined by leading American psychiatrists as the “penicillin of the soul”. The film documents people who have been through terrorist attacks, shell shock, rape and/or abuse and have suffered post-trauma anguish for years, as they undergo MDMA treatment at Beer Yaacov psychiatric hospital.
