With the economic crisis and lack of job opportunities around the world, entrepreneurship is on the up rise. Social entrepreneurship has never been more valued, more needed and more achievable than it is today but yet this term remains unknown to too many people. A group change makers from Iceland have decided to make an inspirational and enlightening documentary about this important phenomenon. The film focuses on a very special social entrepreneur, Madi Sharma, who wants nothing more than to spread out what she believes in. Madi is one of those people you meet in life and always remember. Like most social entrepreneurs she's obsessed by her ideas and has committed her life to changing the direction of her field. She is a visionary and a mass recruiter of local change makers - a role model encouraging that citizens who channel their passion into action can do almost anything.
