This week we discuss the Documentary 'The Amazing Johnathan' about the Comedian/magician of the same name. From Johnathan's life, we see themes of spiritual emptiness, absence of a father figure, coping mechanisms, and a loss of a sense of purpose which many of us can relate to in our own way. But the documentary takes a turn leaving us wondering, "what's the story they are telling?" #WelcomeToTheAdventure
