In 1970, Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock 'n' roll stardom, turning down the chance to record as lead singer for the band soon-to-be-called Blue Oyster Cult. Instead, he sold all his possessions and moved from the suburbs of Long Island to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness and a little known saint named Neem Karoli Baba. One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das follows his journey to India and back, witnessing his struggles with depression and drug abuse, and his eventual emergence as Krishna Das (world-renowned spiritual teacher and Grammy-nominated chant master). 

Featuring interviews with Ram Dass (LSD icon Richard Alpert), Rick Rubin (Grammy Award-winning producer), Sharon Salzberg (New York Times-bestselling author), Daniel Goleman (two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee), and many others. Musical score by J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr) & Devadas.
