World Is My Country

Episode 1 of 1

On the one side are all the nations and armies of the world. On the other, well... there's Garry. Just Garry, a citizen of no nation, only the world, armed only with a song, a dance, and his self-made World Passport. Danny Kaye's Broadway understudy, Garry was so horrified at bombing a city full of civilians in World War II that he leapt off the Broadway stage onto the world stage -- taking on border guards, guns and jail. His bold act of political theater drew Albert Einstein, Eleanor Roosevelt, Albert Camus and thousands of people into a drama that culminated when the UN unanimously passed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights December 10, 1948.
