Originally produced in 2008, this 90-minute documentary delves into the true essense of the human spirit by visiting forgotten souls such as homeless New Yorkers, Peruvian orphans and isolated Ghanaian lepers.
It explores with depth and compassion what it means to be a human being.
By spotlighting heartwarming stories from around the world, this uplifting film shows you that every single person, no matter his or her lot in life, is worth living his or her life.

Part of me says BRILLIANT and the skeptic in me says FAKE. How can two penniless boys finance a documentary of this dimension? Something disturbs me about their apparent philanthropic fling.

i'm not really sure where they were going with this..maybe that was the point? either way it's definitely on the emotional side, other than that, it's hard to not appreciate those less fortunate doing their best to live.
