This documentary explores the history of the drug LSD, as a chemical compound discovered by Albert Hofmann in 1943 in the Basel chemistry lab. Subsequent experiments conducted by Hofmann on himself and fellow scientists would prove almost spiritual in magnitude, creating a cultural phenomenon that would remain a source of questions and controversy for decades to come.
