Summary
Hector is an esteemed psychiatrist whose relationship with his career-driven girlfriend Clara (Rosamund Pike) is one of complete predictability. When Hector's increasing irritability begins to threaten his relationships with his patients, he decides to take a sabbatical, and get out of his comfort zone. In doing so, surmises Hector, he can gain greater insight into his own needs as well as the needs of his patients. Discomforted by his decision yet supportive of his yearning for greater life experience, Clara wishes Hector well as she sends him on the first leg of his globe-trotting adventure. And what an adventure it is; from his initial stop in Shanghai, where a wealthy financier (Stellan Skarsgard) showers him with the spoils of affluence, to his visit with Tibetan monks, his turbulent trip through Africa, and attempt to find closure to a past romance in L.A., Hector gradually discovers the answer to his existential questions, and so much more
