Overview

The simple act of forgiveness can have profound consequences, and in this documentary filmmaker Martin Doblmeier explores the personal and spiritual transformation experienced by those who somehow summoned the power to forgive others for their transgressions. After studying the concept of forgiveness for the past two decades, researchers have finally begun to understand the true power of forgiveness. Recently, clinicians have found that by helping people learn to forgive, they can help them lead more meaningful and productive lives. In this film Doblmeier travels from the Amish countryside to Ground Zero and Northern Ireland in order to explore the power of forgiveness alongside Noble Laureate Elie Wiesel, Reverend James Forbes, Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, and best-selling authors Marianne Williamson and Thomas Moore.
