Way of Life follows the story of Michael Daube, a young artist of modest means from small town America who finds a valuable piece of art in an abandoned warehouse, sells it at auction and builds a hospital in one of the most remote areas of India. The film follows an organic path around the world to illustrate how a single altruistic gesture can evolve into a richly satisfying way of life.
The film focuses on the extraordinary aspects of Daube's continued philanthropic work with hospitals, schools and similar international aid projects. With camera work that is both intimate and stunning, director/cinematographer David Driver interweaves moments of this incredible journey to illustrate how Daube's simple, ground-level approach to working with marginalized communities in the developing world transforms the lives of those involved, as well as his own life.
