This is an amazing and remarkable documentary. Born into abject poverty in Kenya, with an abusive and alcoholic father and a family that completely abandoned him as a child, Charles Mully became a street beggar and, of course, became most hardened and angry at society.
However, after a benevolent Indian woman gave him a break and offered him odd jobs to do, Mully eventually worked his way into becoming a self-made millionaire. But unhappy with his life and circumstances, Mully had an epiphany to get rid of his earthly possessions and to devote his life to helping the poor, especially street orphans like he was himself once.
He began to bring the orphans from the streets of the slums of Kenya to his home and set up his own orphanage. With his wife Esther accepting this for the most part, but running into opposition from his 9 children, Mully steadfastly moved ahead with his plan to save as many youngsters as possible.
Without going into more detail, let's just say his Mully Children's Family, against numerous obstacles, continued on and became the amazing presence and sanctuary it is today, rescuing thousands of orphans and giving them a second chance in life.
Overall, this film, directed by Scott Haze, is a truly inspirational and amazing tale that I can recommend highly to all.
