Storyline

Gennadiy Mokhnenko has made a name for himself by forcibly abducting homeless drug-addicted kids from the streets of Mariupol, Ukraine. As his country leans towards a European Union inclusion, hopes of continued post-Soviet revitalization seem possible. In the meantime, Gennadiy's center has evolved into a more nebulous institution.

User Reviews

 
Presents ups and downs of a culture not know to many but fails to keep your attention for entire movie
24 July 2016 | by DVR_BraleSee all my reviews

There are two realities we usually don't think about a lot. The first one is deprived part of a subculture where drugs and violence occur regularly. The other one is a scope where some individuals and groups give themselves for the sake of others.

All of this is nicely portrayed in this film. Steve Hoover balances portrayals of rock bottom of our society and endearment throughout the movie.

Mokhenko (Pastor Crocodile) is probably not going to be liked by some people. He is a tough guy vigorously pursuing his kind goal. Nevertheless, he is a charismatic leader capable to inspire the you.

I would've given a better grade if the movie were half an hour shorter. Documentary should provide just enough insight to some topic; not attempt to develop a plot no matter what.
