"Basel, 19 April 1943. Dr Albert Hofmann, a chemist, is cycling home after a day's work in the laboratory. This episode has passed into legend, associated with the discovery of the effects on the human psyche of LSD. The film tells the story of this famous "trip", imagining an unconventional psychedelic of the '40s and following the protagonist's physical and emotional journey in perception altered by 'acid', from the quiet streets of Basel back to a memory of childhood, with a touch of humour"
