Plot Summary

Individuals from all walks of life -- movie stars, activists, politicians and others -- campaign to raise public awareness about the situation in Sudan's Darfur region and the urgent need for collective action. Through steps both small and large, these individuals do what they can to halt the genocide and generate sufficient humanitarian aid for the millions who face severe oppression. This crisis, they argue, does not belong just to the inhabitants of Sudan, but to all citizens of the earth.

    This is the kind of film that doesn’t end after the credits roll, and it’s a gold-star example for what a documentary should do: inspire. show more

    More than any previous film on the subject, Braun's documentary offers an answer to a common question, perfectly phrased and answered by Cheadle himself: "What can I do? More than nothing. A lot more than nothing." show more
