Bourgeois & Maurice play us out with the final of BC World (Before Covid). At a time when we’re all feeling helpless and questioning our role in the world. We’re looking to the real saviours who are helping humanity through this crisis, the unsung heroes, those who don’t need the claps, they just do it because they must.
