Standing on the Edge of the World

Bogged down by a career in a cubicle with a dead plant that served as a metaphor for his life, Steve Wanta longed for a deeper connection to purpose. Now he wanders the globe in service. This video follows Wanta as he hops from Texas to Nicaragua to Kenya to Burundi to Rwanda and back again in just 14 days, staying grounded through authentic connection, and finding roots in faraway places.
