Synopsis
Filmmakers Jonathan Walls and Mark Johnson combine the work of musicians on four continents into one global song in an inspirational tribute to the remarkable power of music. Over the course of one year, Walls and Johnson traveled the globe in order to explore the concept of music as a tool in promoting peace. From the traditional music of South African freedom fighters who used song to fight apartheid to the religious songs of the Zuni in New Mexico, music has been bringing people together ever since that fateful first note was sung. Interviews with such acclaimed musicians as Manu Chao highlight the ways in which music unifies mankind while bringing out the best in humanity, while a unique version of Ben E. King's "Stand By Me" recorded on four continents offers firsthand testament to the theory of song as an international language. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
