The Gandhian influence in some way still speaks to the conscience of the world as nations grapple with intractable problems; as societies struggle to give the marginalized and the underserved human dignity and restore fundamental human rights.

The film narrates the impact of the Gandhian message of Non Violence worldwide; how it inspired Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement in USA, the Solidarity Movement in Poland, The Velvet Revolution of  Havel, and the Anti- Apartheid strife in South Africa and Nelson Mandela’s fight against injustice, oppression, racism and his struggle to restore basic human rights and dignity for the coloured citizens of his country. In short, the film decodes the power of Non-Violence and why it remains relevant to this day.

Interviews with world renowned scholars, biographers, as well as close family members of Mahatma Gandhi and Nobel Laureates such as H H The Dalai Lama, Former Polish President Lech Walesa, the feature documentary, weaves in rare archival footage, photographs, inspirational songs,  to put together a compelling and powerful narrative of the impact of Ahimsa- Non Violence in some of the seminal political movements of the 20th century and its continuing relevance for contemporary times. As Martin Luther King Jr. says in the film, “The choice is no longer between Violence and Non Violence. it is between Non-Violence and Non-Existence.”
