• Lisa’s Journey

    The inspiring personal story of a remarkable young woman and her voyage of self-discovery. Lisa Garfinkle left her affluent suburban life in Montreal for one of adventure and social commitment in a faraway land. Through her personal diaries and location filming we re-live the seven year journey that took her from high school rebel and rock musician to activist leading the effort to save the rain forest in southern India.

    The journey begins when she visits Montreal to see her parents who have a hard time accepting her choice to live a world away. A sister’s wedding proves that people sometimes have to go far away to ultimately find home. It concludes when she returns to India where she has become a respected leader in a society once a world away from her own.
