The humanitarian work of Pakistan’s foremost philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi and his Karachi social-welfare organization the Edhi Foundation is best seen in the lives of the orphaned and runaway children that have been rescued from war, brutality, and poverty, given temporary shelter, and sometimes returned to their families. This acclaimed and deeply moving new documentary introduces us to some of the spirited “lost boys” who have been saved by Edhi. “An emotional, aesthetically striking experience…Cuts more deeply than words.” –Scott Tobias. “The most beautiful documentary I can remember.” –Filmmaker Magazine.
