Living on One Dollar
Living on One Dollar follows the journey of four friends as they set out to live on just $1 a day for two months in rural Guatemala. They battle hunger, parasites, and extreme financial stress as they attempt to survive life on the edge. An unimaginable reality 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. In partnership with Multicultural Student Affairs as part of NC State's Common Reading program.
The film will be introduced by Dr. Bob Patterson, Alumni Distinguished Professor of Crop Science in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
