Disillusioned, psychiatrist Hector confesses to his girlfriend that he feels he is a fraud for dispensing recommendations to patients who never seemed to improve or get happier. He considers breaking out of his lackluster routine. Summoning up some courage, Hector gives his starved curiosity free reign and embarks on an internatonal quest to find the right formula to bring him joy and vitality.
Dan Mangan: When Professor Coreman is giving in his lecture and the camera pans across the audience, Dan Mangan, who wrote and performed much of the soundtrack, is sitting in the front row, just stage left of the aisle. See more »
In the night club, Ying Li joins Hector at his table where he wears spectacles. We then see them both walk up a stairway. Hector neither wears nor carries the spectacles. On the final camera shot (looking down the stairs) Hector has his spectacles in his right hand. See more »
[waking suddenly from a nightmare]
Hector... Morning, sweetheart. Time to raise and shine.
One upon a time, there was a young psychiatrist called Hector, who had a very satisfactory life. His world was tidy, uncomplicated. And he liked it that way. He took great comfort in its predictable patterns. Patterns his girl friend Clara was happy to maintain.

It's theeeee most meaningful movie i have ever seen
This is for the first time I am writing a review for a movie despite the fact that i have been a big time movie buff for 20 years. Reason...I was compelled to step out of my own resignation. Of all the brilliant movies out there, this one, in my humble opinion, has the power to shift something deep inside 'most' people. Most.... but not all,,, for some people are so inured into the vagaries of life that they might lose patience with a somewhat slow pace of the movie. Well, losers....have patience...it will pay. If you are someone who values time....YOUR TIME...ON THIS PLANET...you've gotta watch this. There is no incomprehensible philosophical blabbering in this....just plain and authentic experiential learning of a psychiatrist committed to figuring out the answer of perhaps the oldest question of mankind in a non judgmental objective way. Categorically recommended to everyone with even an ounce of brain.
