After being involved in a car accident, Andy quits her job and moves to a rural retreat centre. "South of Nirvana" chronicles her day-to-day life as she encounters Buddhist teachings, wacky... More > characters, and the more difficult side of being Andy. She also discovers that there are many not-so-enlightened gurus around, while the true teachers may remain hidden in the background.
