Khalil Gibran wrote: "If you wish to see the valleys, climb to the mountain top; if you desire to see the mountain top, rise into the cloud; but if you seek to understand the cloud, close your eyes and think."

Into the wild
Christopher McCandless, a 22 young American with a passion for literature, just graduated with success and had a great future ahead of him. But his family history and readings gave him an inexhaustible desire for freedom and truth. Afflicted by his parents' social success and cynicism, he felt a great need to discover the world, to accomplish himself, which made him give up his money and leave in order to search for the truth. Into The Wild was filmed on the road, in many of the actual places where Chris travelled to - from the wheat fields of South Dakota to the rugged plains of the Salton Sea, to the forests of North Alaska. In addition to the film, the book, "In the Extreme Lands" by Jon Krakauer, is highly recommended.
