Synopsis

The Journey of Adam Kadmon recounts the interlocking stories of two men, separated by culture and geography but united in their compelling need to find understanding and enlightenment in a world of illogic and apparent evil. Moses, a Polish Jew and professor of philosophy in Warsaw, is obsessed with the notion that even the best-intentioned people often inadvertently cause harm to others, through acts that can have grave, even fatal consequences. Sahadeva, an Indian now in his thirties, turned his back on his native land in his late teens and sought fulfillment by becoming a Franciscan priest." "The Journey of Adam Kadmon explores the eternal issues of forgiveness and redemption that arise from our spiritual longing and the inevitable hurt that we cause others, even - or perhaps especially - those closest to us.
