A Prayer for Compassion is a documentary that invites those on a religious or spiritual path to embrace all species into their circle of compassion.
This message is explored through Thomas Jackson’s quest across America that ultimately takes him to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference. He asks the question, “Can people who identify as religious or spiritual learn to love all forms of life, both human and nonhuman? Can our empathy for others and dedication to nonviolence extend to those of a different species?”
Drawing on a wide variety of different religious and spiritual practices, A Prayer for Compassion welcomes people of all religious and spiritual stripes to stand united against unnecessary animal suffering.
