„No Way To Heaven“ begins on a remote island in Southeast Asia. There, Fritz Joss, a young man from the Swiss mountains has decided to stop eating - once and for all. He plans to find sustenance in pure (sun-)light by applying what is known as the „21 day process“. In a manner at once relaxed and almost child-like in its naïvety, Fritz sets off on his endeavour, but the planned conversion to „breatharianism“ is much more difficult than anticipated. „No Way To Heaven“ is a film about a spiritual quest. With its hallucinatory images, the film raises questions that transcend those merely concerning a nutrition-less life. For all of its philosophical implications, however, the film never loses sight of life`s quirkier and more comical aspects.
