This is not your typical "activist film" but an inspirational story that will leave you empowered to do good and do more! How many people does it take to change the world? Every day all around the world, ordinary people are doing extraordinary things.
Mother/daughter filmmakers, circle the globe on a 99-day journey, seeking people who are making a positive difference in the world. They find remarkable people who are showing the world how to inspire others and create positive change.
This film tells the stories of eleven change makers on six continents who are making our world a better place, including: Maggie - a 19-year-old who built a home in Nepal for 30 orphans, David- a physician who trekked into Thailand's remote northern hill-tribe villages to offer medical care where there is no doctor, Ronni - a successful event planner who saw good food being dumped daily and started a food rescue program, and eight more inspirational "community leaders".
