The Hand You Were Dealt
Watch the Short Film
Among the many ideas and beliefs that separate us, there exist two fundamental human qualities that we can all connect to: the yearning for love and the ability to help others.
This short film–created in partnership with the Spread the Love Commission–follows the unlikely relationship between a homeless man and a service worker, and reminds us to never forget the power we have in saving each other.
