clean is good

Director: carlos matiella.
Richard is sick of his life. He embarks on an inner journey, with the aid of very special guides. Looking for the serenity and joy he underwent at some moments of his life, this trip takes him into meditation on the different stages of his life, and the different degrees of self-knowledge experienced during infancy, childhood and his youth. When did the sensations of calm and joy left to let alienation and anguish arise? Ricardo will discover himself as part of the Cosmos, all he needs to be OK is already inside him. Clean is good.
