In 1961, President John F. Kennedy asked a generation of Americans to volunteer and make a difference on a global scale. Since then, 200,000 volunteers have answered his call. The film weaves the personal letters, journals, emails and blogs written by Peace Corps Volunteers with profiles of four returned Volunteers showing the enduring impact of these experiences on their own lives and the lives of others.
