    • Synopsis
    • Voluntourism is all over social media. It’s the perfect platform to show your adventurous, humanitarian, globetrotting side. In addition, the voluntourism “phenomenon” is fed by the uncontrollable Western urge to do good. 21-year-old Mitchell strongly feels that need, too. He books a volunteering trip to South Africa. The world of a volunteer turns out to be one full of new encounters, but also one in which expectations and reality can clash. What’s the truth behind that cute new profile picture?
