A film about a Mr. Nickens who decides to take action to help young people out of unemployment.
Filmed in wonderful Soweto, Johannesburg. Thanks to all the amazing people who made this film possible. Everyone involved has given their time, energy and talent to this film mostly for free.
It is the launch of a charity campaign to wake up Norwegian politicians to invest more of the Norwegian Oil fund in developing countries. Currently only 1% of this huge "Cash Cow" is invested in poor countries. This is not fair. Also responsible investments in developing countries is a great tool to help people work them selves out of poverty.
