THROUGH THE EASTERN GATE follows three young adults from the Western world who willfully abandon their material goods and seek meaning in ancient spiritual traditions. Eschewing the typical academic approach to explaining Eastern religions, this touching, intimate documentary focuses instead on the personal experiences of its subjects, and watches as they struggle with uncertainty, self-awareness, and the powers of faith.
