Three "boys" unite on the un-inhabited Owey ("cave") Island in Ireland during a rite of passage.
Living in three different times and age groups they share the struggle to "BE selves" and serve the ungoing project "homo sapiens" with their unique gifts in a troubled world.

Just two month before his graduation André escaped a broken educational system and a controlling maternal home to France. Restless he let his finger travel on a Europe map one night at the garden fire circle. „Ireland calls!“ he announced and got a hint from one of his new friends about a no longer inhabited island. The very next day he left the tiny french community without money not knowing in which direction to go. Hitch-hiking all the way he finally arrived on „Owey Island“ irish: Uaigh, meaning "the Cave"..
After a 3 month project as a digital nomad in the Silicon Valley scene of California and another 3 month journey to a rainbow gathering living unplugged and outdoor at the wild golf coast of Baja California, Mexico close to La Paz (Peace)... Rahasya “Ra” returned to Münster, Germany where his 4 year old son had just returned from Thailand. Ra launched a digital peace project with a sun king like creative peak performance and an impressive network of allies not yet knowing how soon and deep he will fall from the sky...
5 years of doing a regular job trying to become a “normal citizen” and to fit in with a second round of family fatherhood, Sap´s “old friend” the Daimon “Bipolar disorder” returned in heavy progression and rapid cycling in his "midwife crisis". Suicidal thoughts sneaked closer and woke him up.. called loud to let himself fall to the deepest ground..just to rise with courage into what he really is while he becomes older and maybe Elder in an accelerating unstable world so much in need of initiated wisdom.
