Opening Our Eyes DVD
 

Every day......All around the world

Ordinary people are doing extraordinary things. They are making a difference in the lives of others and themselves.

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 create positive change - through the power of ONE.

This film tells the stories of nine change makers on six continents who are making our world a better place.

Meet some of these amazing people:

Maggie - a 19-year-old on a post-high school gap year, who built a home in Nepal for 30 orphans using her saved babysitting earnings! She now lives there, and has recently completed construction on a school for 250 children.
David - a physician who trekked into Thailand's remote northern hill-tribe villages, offering 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. She got Australian law changed, and now saves food from waste while feeding the hungry.
Maureen & Marian - Displaced autoworkers who are fighting for basic human rights in the declining neighborhoods of inner city Detroit.

How many people does it take to change the world?
Only one - one person at a time.
