Produced by Melissa Danis and Monson through Nation Earth, “Unity” explores the interconnectivity of all life on Earth and what it means to be human, exploring themes of love, tragedy and hope.

“The title ‘Unity’ signifies the intention of the content,” Monson said. “It’s not so much to entertain, like a past-time, but rather turn something ‘on’ inside you that has been suppressed or forgotten by the mask that society or tradition puts upon us. But more than that the film also helps relate us to the mystery of existence, to all of existence, which we are merely a part. “
