In this remarkably hopeful and inspiring portrait of determination and selflessness, this film examines the crosscurrents that push and pull our lives in unexpected directions. Charles Mully, abandoned by his parents in rural Kenya at six years old, finds his way to Nairobi. Once there, his street smarts and entrepreneurial drive help him rapidly build an impressive array of businesses that give him wealth, attention and creature comforts far removed from his humble beginnings. But after a dramatic encounter with local beggars and thieves, Mully begins to question the forces and impulses that fueled his success. Deciding to radically change his value set, Mully sets out to help Kenya’s orphaned children find homes, education and a future. With a nuanced and absorbing window into Kenyan culture as a backdrop, Mully is a vital reminder that real change must sometimes start within ourselves.
