Beyond Our Differences: With all of the problems facing the world today, people are longing for meaning. Many seek answers in spirituality, but often faith and religion are hijacked by a fundamentalist few who use the name of God to promote their own ends. With this dichotomy in mind, we call upon key religious leaders, politicians, and luminaries in their fields to tackle the most complex issues in the modern age, and we ask what inspires them to affect positive change. "One" portrays experiences that provide a new perspective on how non-violent activism and compassion can be effectively used in resolving even the most difficult disputes.

Principal Cast: His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Author Deepak Chopra, Ela Gandhi (grand-daughter of Mahatma Gandhi) Andrew Young top aid to Martin Luther King Jr. former president of Iran Mohammad Khatami Prime Minister of Malaysia Dato' Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Musician/Activist Peter Gabriel.
