One Girl is a documentary that takes an intimate glimpse into one ordinary day in the lives of four girls from four different countries in the same meridian. The film allows us to see the lives of these girls from South Sudan, Romania, Palestine and Finland. With their innocence and spontaneity, children can show us our differences and similarities, portraying their inner beauty and sometimes their hard challenges. They teach us to be more sympathetic with “others” and give us a better understanding of our world.
