Perfume War is inspiring and well-told 

Bonus points for featuring two Haligonians.

Michael Melski’s rousing documentary follows the journey of
Haligonians Trevor Greene and Barb Stegemann, lifelong best friends. Greene is a soldier wounded by an axe attack in Afghanistan. Stegemann is the founder of The 7 Virtues, a fragrance company that buys its oils from farmers there, freeing them from forcibly growing poppies that eventually become heroin. Stegemann’s fortitude and tenacity in support of Greene’s good heart and truncated mission—her motto is “Make perfume, not war”—combine for a twin throughline to this story that starts on the steps of King’s, stops at Dragons Den’ and ends at perfume counters worldwide. Inspiring and well-told.
