Plot Summary: Rooted in deeply personal accounts and timeless stories, "Finding Joe" shows how author Joseph Campbell's work is relevant and essential in today's world and how it provides a narrative for how to live a fully realized life; or, as Campbell would simply state, how to "follow your bliss".

While studying myths, and writing on the human experience, Joseph Campbell was a professor at Sarah Lawrence College for 38 years. His seminal work, "A Hero with a Thousand Faces" was published in 1949 and greatly influenced generations of artists and writers, including Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison, Stanley Kubrick, George Lucas, Jerry Garcia and others.
