In this feature-length documentary, three young men (an Atheist and two Christians) journey across three continents immersing themselves in extreme poverty and living on only $1.25 a day. Produced by Speak Up Productions, What Matters? is a dramatic life and death journey into real physical and emotional tragedy, but also a humorous and thrilling story of courage, hope, enlightenment, friendship, commitment, recovery, and heroic love. For most of us who are not able to put our lives on hold to explore the real questions of poverty, this film exposes the harsh realities of poverty and shows us that everyone can make a real difference in their own lives and in the lives of others. It truly lives up to its tagline of “Connecting those who need something to live for with those who need something to live.”
The goal is to challenge you with 2 questions, “What breaks your heart?” & “What Makes you come alive?” because at the intersection of the answers to those questions is where we believe you will find your purpose in making a difference in this world.
