Entrepreneur Jack Sim (aka Mr. Toilet), Founder of World Toilet Organization (WTO), has been a successful businessman since age 24. Having achieved financial success in his 40s, Jack felt the need to change his direction in life and give back to humanity – he wanted to live his life according to the motto “Live a useful life”. Jack soon left his business and embarked on a journey that saw him being the voice for those who cannot speak out and fighting for the dignity, rights and health for the vulnerable and poor worldwide.

The short was directed by Jessica Yu, an the Oscar-winning director of Breathing Lessons, In the Realms of the Unreal, Protagonist, and Last Call at the Oasis. Mr. Toilet made its debut 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
