The official synopsis reads:

When a NYC journalist’s life crashes and burns, she becomes infatuated with a celebrity guru, and begins a wild journey of love and grand larceny. Running from her past, Parker Schafer, hits rock bottom. Her longtime boyfriend dumps her and returns to his ex-wife. In a drug fueled downward spiral, she blows up her career and reputation in a spectacular act of self-sabotage, giving her best friend and boss no choice but to fire her. With nothing to lose, Parker reluctantly tries a remote wellness retreat with the famed Guru Shuroo. Over three days, a diverse group of unlikely characters are brought together through Shuroo’s process: digital detox, meditation, gas lighting, mescaline trips… fraud! However, the spell soon lifts and Parker uncovers a story that will expose Shuroo. The scoop could put her back on top! But will she find redemption? THE SHUROO PROCESS explores the dangers of the cultish self-help industry and what it’s like to fall prey to its promises of transformation.
