Trip Of Compassion
Thousands of victims of PTSD in Israel live with no hope. In recent years an innovative treatment for PTSD was developed – psycho active substances.
The film documents victims of PTSD, over a period of several years, who are treated with MDMA at the Beer Yaakov Mental Health Center.
In the film, we return with the PTSD patients to the site of the trauma, to their lives before and to the long and complex road that is fully documented and which provides a rare glimpse into a treatment/research process that restores their will to live.
The protagonists courageously consented to allow us to use the trial footage, knowing the importance of this unusual treatment that they underwent.
