‘… I have seen people who were rich and thought they had the answers fall apart, and let their beautiful being emerge too.’

This is a film about the nature of poverty.

Perhaps it even points in part to where we might work together to solve it. It starts with a well known proverb, ‘Give a man a fish and you feed him for the day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.’

But what if the causes of poverty were to lie much deeper than many of us assume. And what if poverty were much wider spread than many of imagine.

Armed with her cleverness and resource, Maria Pacheco set out to fight poverty and to change the world.

But she was soon to realise the depth at which poverty exists. The solution to the predicament she faced would soon take her breath away. As lives were transformed. Together.
