In the film, experts such as mycologist Paul Stamets and authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone and Andrew Weil reveal the ways in which mushrooms harbor a vast and barely explored potential for healing, renewing the environment, providing sustenance and altering consciousness. Time-lapse macro cinematography by director Schwartzberg (Wings of Life) brings mushrooms and their underworld networks to astonishing vibrant life.
