Plot Synopsis

CHANCE OF A LIFETIME is reality series that follows three groups of young international filmmakers, as they create one-, five- and ten-minute documentaries about the work of the United Nations, including issues like poverty, education rates, child mortality, hunger and clean water. Participants from India, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates are grouped into three international teams, with one member from each country on a team. In the first round, each team pitched their proposal for a documentary, then had 24 hours to make a one-minute documentary on their issue. They then competed in progressive rounds of the show, being assigned new topics each step of the way and being tasked with making longer films (5 minutes, 10 minutes). The eventual winning team will present their 10-minute film to the United Nations.
