Trivia

At the beginning of the film, after a man empties out the contents of the backpack and doesn't find anything valuable and leaves it, a homeless looking young girl approaches it and begins to pick up the contents. There are several letters and one of the letters she picks up has on the envelope written "mac guffin", this is a reference to a plot device popularly used in films known as a MacGuffin in which an object serves as the form of some goal, desired object, or other motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation- just like the backpack in this film.

Intriguing concept and gripping story!
6 September 2014 | by Alexander SchoenauerSee all my reviews

this is an awesome example of how it is possible for people from various religions and countries to work towards a common goal - a feature film in this case. This fact alone sends out a strong message to the world that there is an alternative to the current global situation ... that people are more than ready to live and work together in a creative and peaceful way.

The film itself offers a grand scope spanning over various continents and it is fascinating that it weaves together so very well considering that it was shot by 25 different filmmakers with their own style and background.

Kudos to the people behind this film!
