In this feature documentary, 4 young friends set out to live on just $1 a day for 2 months in rural Guatemala. Armed with a video camera, they battle hunger, parasites, and extreme financial stress as they attempt to survive life on the edge. Unimaginable for most young Americans, the challenges they face are real and plague over 1.1 billion people around the world. While the friends quickly learn there are no easy answers, the generosity and strength of Rosa, a 20-year-old woman, and Chino, a 12-year-old boy, give them resilient hope that there are effective ways to make a difference
