Every three seconds someone in the world dies from factors related to extreme poverty - 30,000 people a day and 10.5 million a year. The sheer magnitude can be overwhelming, causing people to ask the question, "What can one person do, to possibly make a difference?"

The movie, through its portraits of five ordinary folks, will show audiences that each one of us has the potential to do great things to change the world. We hope to inspire a movement and uncover a new wave of change agents and previously untapped resources.

"An empowering, beautiful act of compassion that will move you to do what evolution has designed us to do - take care of our fellow human beings in small acts of grace." - Dacher Keltner,  Professor of Psychology, UC Berkeley and Founding Director, The Greater Good Science Center
