A Small Good Thing is a feature documentary that tells the stories of six people moving away from a philosophy of “more is better” toward a more holistic conception of well-being − one based on a close connection to themselves, their families, the natural world, and to the greater good.
Three of these stories follow men who served in the armed forces and have now shifted to service of a different kind; Sean Stanton finds his calling in farming, Tim Durrin becomes a social work student and Mark Gerow a yoga teacher. Jen and Pete Salinetti, a college-educated couple with two small children, have chosen to be farmers as a way to connect with their community, and Shirley Edgerton is a community activist and founder of both the Youth Alive Step Team and the Women of Color Giving Circle.
