One Fine Day
Portraits of six people who have had a significant and positive influence on society through one small and non-violent act.
ONE FINE DAY shows six people from different cultures and religions who all, through a small non-violent act, have had a significant and positive influence on society. We meet a young Burmese monk, a Chilean student, a German priest, a young Iraqi woman, a former American athlete and a Chinese teenager. Director Klaas Bense investigates how frustration can be turned into positive action. He looks at what one single individual can achieve - and the often severe, personal consequences of their action.
