By Catholic News Service

Directed by Ken Carlson, this uplifting documentary follows Dr. Thomas Catena as he lives and works with the people of the Nuba Mountains region of Sudan. Guided by the faith passed on to him by his devout family, Catena volunteered to serve in Africa through the Catholic Medical Mission Board, becoming the only physician available for 200 miles and for a population of almost a million. The grim backdrop to his story is the violent oppression of the Sudanese regime led by indicted war criminal Omar al-Bashir.

Graphic medical footage, images of gory wounds, a few crass terms. The Catholic News Service classification is A-II — adults and adolescents. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
