In 1999, filmmaker Jeremy Gilley had a simple but powerful idea – persuade the world to lay down its weapons for a day. Two years later, the member states of the United Nations declared an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September. Despite the humanitarian successes in Afghanistan and in other parts of the world, a global ceasefire still proves elusive. In this third film, Jeremy continues to record his extraordinary efforts to achieve the seemingly impossible.
