About the Movie: You can find the official trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ze72rpWp_Dg.

Living on One Dollar is a film and tool to help empower the extreme poor to take the first steps out of poverty. The film follows the story of four young friends who set out to live on just one dollar a day for eight weeks in rural Guatemala. They battle hunger, parasites and the realization that there are no easy answers. Yet, the generosity and strength of Rosa, a 20 year old women, and Chino, a 12 year old boy gives them resilient hope that there are effective ways to make a difference.
