Set against a backdrop of incredible devastation, we follow the personal journeys of three remarkable volunteers who, when the Asian tsunami hit, dropped everything to fly to Sri Lanka to help. Both observational and character-driven, this documentary also canvases the opinions of leading scientists to provide a unique insight into the mysteries of altruism and the true nature of humankind.
