Academy award winning director, John Zaritsky, a bit of an oddball himself, answers that question and many others as he introduces us to a cast of weird and wonderful characters who celebrate being out of sync with society’s norms, and enjoy many freedoms that most of us can only envy. He finds out why they seem to be physically and psychologically better off than the rest of us and in doing so, challenges the viewer’s perspective of ‘normal behavior’. John takes us on a journey into another way of living and joins, among others, Daniel who lives productively and happily without using money from his home base, a cave in Utah, and Laura who has a duck that can tell people’s fortunes in Vancouver.
