The story of a young musician who heads to the Himalayas and, eventually, becomes a world-renowned spiritualist.

In 1970, young musician Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock ’n’ roll stardom—turning down the lead singer slot in a band that would become Blue Oyster Cult. He sold all his possessions and moved from the suburbs of New York to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness and a little-known saint. One Track Heart follows Kagel’s journey to India and back, his struggles with depression and drug abuse, and his eventual emergence as Krishna Das—spiritual teacher, chant master, and Grammy-nominated recording artist. The film features interviews with Be Here Now author and spiritual guru Ram Dass, Grammy-winning producer Rick Rubin, bestselling author Sharon Salzberg, and Pulitzer Prize nominee Daniel Goleman, as well as a score by Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis and Devadas. One Track Heart is the inspiring story of how one man’s journey continues to transform countless lives. (72 mins., DCP)
