“I an” is the story of a successful Hollywood director, Tom Shadyac (“Liar Liar”, “Nutty Professor”, “Bruce Almighty”), who experienced a life threatening head injury, and his ensuing journey to try and answer two very basic questions:

What’s wrong with our world? and What can we do about it?

With a film crew of four, Tom visits some of today’s great minds, including authors, poets, teachers, religious leaders, and scientists (Howard Zinn, Lynn McTaggart, Desmond Tutu, Thom Harmann, Coleman Barks) searching for the fundamental endemic problem that causes all of the other problems, while simultaneously reflecting on this own life choices of excess, greed and eventual healing.

“We started by asking what’s wrong with the world, and ended up discovering what’s right with it.” Tom Shadyac
