LOG LINE
A small midwestern school joins forces with a legendary Hollywood director in an ambitious mission to eliminate violence and life-threatening stress in schools across the planet.

SYNOPSIS
Somethings happening deep in the heartland of America. Some folks are starting to call Fairfield, Iowa the Midwestern Stepford. A few locals claim theres a creepy cult slowly taking control of their comfortable small town. Even the County Commissioners are saying, We really dont know whats going on here.

But a legendary Hollywood director and the local school hes teamed up with know exactly whats up in Fairfield.

School of Thought is a mysterious and amazing adventure into the Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment with Academy Award-nominee, David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks and The Elephant Man). David brings along a few friends to Fairfield, including Beatles collaborator, Donovan (Mellow Yellow, Hurdy Gurdy Man and Sunshine Superman) and the world-renowned quantum physicist, John Hagelin (What The Bleep Do We Know!?)

Together, these three peacemakers are touring the world with their mind-blowing solution to creating harmonious schools and world peace. Their answer: Have every student in every school practice Transcendental Meditation twice a day and watch them quickly become happier, healthier and more focused, thereby dissolving the life-threatening stress which typically manifests itself in young people through drug abuse and violence, often in fatal ways.

Join the Maharishi University coeds as they honor David and celebrate his arrival with their annual David Lynch Weekend. On the same special night, the younger students at the Maharishi School are celebrating their senior prom - where they find themselves in a surreal scene straight out of a David Lynch film, when the Hollywood icon crowns the shocked Prom King and Queen during a surprise visit with Donovan and Grammy-nominee Moby.

Youll be fully engrossed with this intriguing journey through the boys and girls meditation rooms and the giant Golden Dome of this Consciousness-Based educational institution where thousands of the Fairfield faithful meditate together. Its an unbelievably peaceful K-12 school where the upper grades consistently score in the top 1% of the nation on standardized tests, the athletes win state championships every year and each student is required to meditate twice a day.
