SYNOPSIS

Richard Branson and his daughter Holly, Magic Johnson, Nelly Furtado, Rick Hansen, Roméo Dallaire, and former child soldier Michel Chikwanine each share how they moved from a modest beginning to celebrity status, and how they turned their fame into an effective force for social change. Woven throughout are personal observations from host Craig Kielburger, along with archival imagery and footage illustrating key moments in the lives of our Shameless Idealists.
