Enlighten Up! is a documentary where filmmaker Kate Churchill sets out to show how yoga can transform anyone. She chooses a skeptical journalist, Nick Rosen, to be her guinea pig. Kate immerses Nick in yoga, and follows him around the world as he examines the good, the bad and the ugly of yoga. The two encounter celebrity yogis, true believers, kooks and world-renowned gurus. As the movie progresses, tension between Nick and Kate runs high. His spiritual progress lags and her plan appears to crumble. But ultimately, what they find is not what they were looking for.
