Daisetsu Suzuki was a pivotal figure in bringing Zen to the West.

As well as being a charismatic speaker, he was a prolific translator of Chinese, Japanese, and Sanskrit literature. He also wrote many original works, notably the three volume, Essays in Zen Buddhism; Studies in Zen Buddhism and Manual of Zen Buddhism. His, An Introduction to Zen Buddhism, includes a commentary by Carl Jung.

But despite his prolific literary output, he always stressed the importance of actually experiencing satori.

The film follows the progress of his life and thought and many fascinating insights into his character are offered by those who knew him well.
