At the forefront of this uplifting array of personal portraits is love of family, art, tradition and community, heartwarming accounts of remarkable individuals who reject the status quo and carve out their own paths in life. From war-torn Laos and Ethiopia of the 1970's to small-town Alabama, from Morocco to Haiti and all the way back to Pikesville, Maryland, each of these passionate stories is a tale of individual dedication that is a triumph and an inspiration.
