Inspired by the Edna St Vincent Millay poem all the performers in the film were asked to recite the text but also to add their own thoughts and personal statements.
The result is a moving film that captures the opposing senses of helplessness and determination we all experience when faced with the huge issue of peace in our time.
The film has been shown at various International Peace Conventions and Conferences around the world.
It has sparked debate and positive interaction amongst its audiences. Just what it was intended to do.
