Check out the trailer:

The Answer tells the powerful true story of an American, James Donald Walters. The film portrays his youthful quest for truth which took him from his birthplace (1926) in Romania to Hollywood, California (1948) where he meets and is accepted as a disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, the great Indian Master, author of Autobiography of a Yogi. This is the story of an amazing spiritual journey. It is a metaphor for the spiritual journey of each and every one of us.

This film is the saga of Young Donald’s (later known as Swami Kiryananda) anguished search, of his momentary illuminations and dark nights, of his determination to never give up, and of the winding path that leads him to the presence of his spiritual master. In his quest, we recognize the eternal search of every individual; through his inner battles, the discovery of our own inner strength; in his attunement with the expanded vision of his master, the hope for our own illuminations.

The Answer, is an epic motion picture that presents, for the first time on the cinematic screen, one of the most widely-known and revered spiritual Masters of our times, Paramhansa Yogananda, through the living testimony and in the own words of his direct disciple Swami Kriyananda who lived with him and vowed to carry his light to future generations.
