Commissioned by Stanford's Graduate School of Business (GSB), this film explores the birth, history, and 40th anniversary of key programs that helped define today's social entrepreneurs, government leaders, and social innovators. Bay Area Pictures produced the year-long project, interviewing GSB faculty, alumni, and students in locations across the United States. The film includes former Ford Motor CEO Arjay Miller, former Indiana Health Commissioner Dr. Woodrow Wilson, current Habitat for Humanity CEO Jonathan Reckford, Kiva co-founder Jessica Jackley, McKinsey Senior Fellow Lenny Mendonca, and Acumen Fund Founder and CEO Jacqueline Novogratz among many others.

In response to the historical events of the late 60's and the growing societal demands on business, the GSB's 4th dean Arjay Miller, developed a pioneering vision for educating leaders to accommodate the needs of both business and society. The Public Management Program (PMP), created 40 years ago, was the first of its kind then. While the PMP kept reinventing itself to meet the needs of new generations of leaders, the now 10-year-old Center for Social Innovation expanded the work of the PMP to a larger audience of executives and set on a course to create a field of social innovation, a journey that led to the launch of multiple academic centers for social innovation around the world and the creation of the White House Office for Social Innovation in the United States.
