About the film

How do you change someone's mind about the most important thing in the world? Anita Chitaya has a gift: she can change farmers' minds about what to grow, she can change what people love to eat, and she can even persuade men to fight for gender equality. Now, to save her home in Malawi from extreme weather, she faces her greatest challenge: persuading Americans that climate change is real.
