The much-loved musician and social activist Michael Franti embarks on a mission to find out how we can hold on to our humanity in what seems a crazy and uncaring world. Franti travels to the Philippines, Bali, South Africa and elsewhere to meet people who have chosen to overcome cynicism with optimism and tenacity – and to communicate their examples of hope in story and song. Franti reflects on his own struggles, as a child and a musician, and shares the inspiration he finds in these stories. His film aims to inspire people to become change-makers by utilising creativity, courage and love to face their daily challenges, and to stay human.
