Interviews with scientists and authors, animated bits, and a storyline involving a deaf photographer are used in this docudrama to illustrate the link between quantum mechanics, neurobiology, human consciousness and day-to-day reality.
As the extremely withdrawn Don Johnston is dumped by his latest woman, he receives an anonymous letter from a former lover informing him that he has a son who may be looking for him. A freelance sleuth neighbor moves Don to embark on a cross-country search for his old flames in search of answers.

"WHAT THE #$*! DO WE KNOW?!" is a radical departure from convention. It demands a freedom of view and greatness of thought so far unknown, indeed, not even dreamed of since Copernicus. It's a documentary. It's a story. It's mind-blowing special effects. This film plunges you into a world where quantum uncertainty is demonstrated - where neurological processes, and perceptual shifts are engaged and lived by its protagonist - where everything is alive, and reality is changed by every thought.

On the steps of the church Amanda was offended enough by the young men's crass comments that she flashed her camera in their faces. But she was not in position to read their lips. See more »
Modern materialism strips people of the need to feel responsible, and often enough so does religion. But I think if you take quantum mechanics seriously, it puts the responsibility squarely into your lap.It doesn't give answers that are clear cut and comforting. It says yes, the world is a very big place, it's very mysterious, mechanism is not the answer, but I'm not gonna tell you what the answer is because you're old enough to decide for yourself.

I saw the movie as new age religion passed as scientific fact.
The movie got a lot of the quantum theory and neurology right, but then it proceeds to make a lot of wild tangential claims that are loosely based on the theory and pass it off as the absolute truth. Anybody with a advanced physics background (my job requires an advanced math and physics background) will be deeply turned off (despite the fact that a number of physicists and neurologists are interviewed for the film). The scientists back up the scientific theory, but then some new age woman and others (some scientists, but mainly that woman) kept on saying things that were loosely based off of the theory. The movie basically passed that off as scientificly valid as quantum theory, but provides no serious argument as to why. I was really bothered by the fact that the movie was already drawing conclusions for me instead of posing questions as to different possibilities.
The movie may be interesting to some, and I don't discurage anybody from watching it, but please watch it with a grain of salt.
