Storyline

1959, support from US troops based in Asia and later from the Sates enables two actresses to start a charity for mixed-race 'orphans' who are locally neglected as outcasts. Thus originates Childhelp, which later runs multi-disciplinary centers for abused and/or neglected children in the States. Among them is bright Jacob Fletcher, whose stepfather, a lawyer, terrorized him into utter trauma and reclaims him shortly after 10 months in jail. Jacob's peers have distressing stories of their own, but competent, devoted staff helps most of them decisively on the former farm, using animal therapy. Written by KGF Vissers

Awakening
10 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been anticipating watching this movie for a month and it was beyond my expectations of a lifetime movie. The acting was superior (Gilpin, Polo and the child actors). This movie follows two women (Gilpin and Polo) on their journey to help children around the world. Through their journey of orphans and abused children they stumble across Jacob, an severely abused child,whose story makes the movie touching and meaningful. The movie can get a little confusing at times because they do switch from one decade to another, as long as you're paying attention you'll understand what is going on. The movie was a great awakening of what some children are living through and that people can really change the world for others.
