From Oscar-winning filmmaker Freida Lee Mock. Father Greg Boyle, a white Jesuit priest, has spent some 25 years in the toughest part of East LA, offering jobs not jail, to tough, street-smart, and amazingly sweet young people, all former gang members. Father Boyle is a charismatic visionary, but he's made the dream real: his Homeboy Industries has become the largest, most successful gang intervention and rehab program in the U.S. and an inspiration for helping kids at risk.

There are people out there doing beautiful things in the world. This documentary tells the story of Father Greg, who has given hundreds of former gang members the chance to become part of a wonderful community of dedicated members, who work at real jobs, and heal the violence of their pasts with the love that has been created by the Homeboys organization. Very moving look at a truly awesome group of people.
