A truly inspirational documentary! Shows how One person can have a vision and be determined to bring it to reality, for one reason only... to help the very poor in this one community! Not just emergency help, but a sustainable community! Father Joseph brings people together, inspires them to do their best and propels others to work as a community, for the betterment of the community as a whole! He brings people on board! Raises money! No matter what goes on politically or environmentally, he does not give up! He starts all over again when that Earthquake had levelled all the buildings that he and the community so worked hard to build for over 20 years! This community even built their own road without any government help to help to bring their goods to the market, etc! By hand!! They have built a Radio Station, an Orphanage, a School, an University, a Bank, and so on!.... And then they had to do it all over again! Some very good people were assassinated, because of how effective they were, paid with their lives! Despite all the threats, this Community continues on! Father Joseph gave these people in a Haitian community hope, purpose and determination!
