"Something's happening deep in the heartland of America."
Folks are starting to call little Fairfield, Iowa the "Midwestern Stepford." A few locals claim there's a creepy cult taking over their comfortable town. Even the County Commissioners are saying, "We really don't know what's going on here!" But a legendary Hollywood director and the local school he's teamed up with, know exactly what's happening 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 and presidential candidate, 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.
You'll 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. It's 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.
