Storyline

An award-winning film that has been called "A Must Watch" by Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus and Director of The Hunger Games, Gary Ross. Living on One Dollar follows the journey of four friends as they set out to live on just $1 a day for two months in rural Guatemala. They battle hunger, parasites, and extreme financial stress as they attempt to survive life on the edge. An unimaginable reality for most young Americans, the challenges they face are real and plague over 1.1 billion people around the world. While the friends quickly learn there are no easy answers, the generosity and strength of Rosa, a 20 year old woman, and Chino, a 12 year old boy, give them resilient hope that there are effective ways to make a difference.

I'm in love with cities I've never been to and people I've never met.
27 January 2015 | by marra_miaSee all my reviews

This movie is absolutely remarkable. It opens the eyes of viewers to look past the place that they live and realize that even on your hardest day, you can still have it better than others. I absolutely loved it the first time I watched it, and the 4 times after that as well. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. I may not be able to change the entire world but if I can just change one person's world that is good enough for me and I want to spend the rest of my life doing so. Thank you for the inspiration and a view of true humanity. God Bless everyone involved in the production of this film.

Sincerely,

A 15 Year Old Viewer
