Anne Morgan, daughter of American financier J. P. Morgan, wanted to be “something better than a rich fool”. In order to do this, she used her own wealth and raised funds to rebuild Picardy, a region in France destroyed in World War I. She assisted the affected locals in re-establishing a means of livelihood, and getting access to medical aid. The images she released to the American public helped raise around $5 million towards the cause. This feature documents her astounding efforts and the reconstruction of Northern France.
