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.

A heartwarming piece
14 January 2017 | by alkaabiasmaSee all my reviews

Poverty has been a big issue since humanity has started. Four young college students go to Guatemala city over the summer to get the experience of living on one dollar each day. The documentary discusses how families fight for survival. Different locals are interviewed from all ages to talk about how they manage to live or make money under tough conditions. Many heartwarming and tragic stories were told. Living On One Dollar is suitable for every person that wants to learn something new and get motivated to help those in need. The families were so welcoming and kind to the students even though they didn't have much to offer. The world would be a much better place if everyone started loving and respecting each other. Overall, the documentary is inspiring, eye-opening, and pure.
