Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Determined to grow as both a human being and an artist, hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg takes a spiritual pilgrimage to Jamaica as filmmaker Andy Capper captures his gradual metamorphosis into Snoop Lion over the course of one profoundly transformational month. For as long as Snoop can remember, he's been rapping, but upon turning 41, the hustler lifestyle begins to take its toll on the man who turned out such hits as "Murder Was the Case," and who has seen the lives of too many friends taken by violence. While visiting Trench Town, Snoop seeks the wisdom of the Nyabinghi community elders in finding a new direction, and reflects on the past and future while immersing himself in Rastafarian culture. Later, in the wake of a deeply affecting meeting with the legendary Bunny Wailer, Snoop Dogg embraces his new identity as Snoop Lion.
