Movie Details

Academy Award-winner Michael Douglas narrates this documentary exploring the steps being taken to achieve peace in the 21st Century. Watching the nightly news, it's hard to imagine a world without war. Everyone seems to be fighting. Meanwhile, a closer look reveals an altogether different picture. Incredibly, enemies that have been feuding for centuries are finally forging peace agreements founded on mutual respect and understanding. Individuals are making enormous strides in extolling the virtues of peace, and even the war profiteers are realizing that pacifism pays. The best reason to give up fighting is the most obvious: protecting our planet. Our only hope for evolving is through cooperation. The more we abuse the earth, the more we squander our enormous potential as a species. Perhaps by witnessing the incredible strength of others, we will find the inspiration to begin our own quest for peace. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
