Synopsis

The Last Resort tells an intimate story about Danish war veteran, Henrik, who after his second deployment in Afghanistan returns to Denmark with post traumatic stress syndrome.

 

After various failed treatment attempts, he moves deep into the Amazon jungle trying to cure himself with plant medicine, including the world’s most halogenic drink, Ayahuasca.

 

The film follows Henrik’s fight in the jungle throughout three years and gives us a unique close up on a broken human being. A man let down by the same society he tried to protect. On a journey that doesn’t cure him the way he had hoped. And out in the jungle, he still wears his uniform with the Danish flag on his shoulder.
