About the film: “The unmistakable power of love is celebrated in this story of one man’s decision to move to India and restart his life among the dispossessed. ‘Rocky Anna,’ as the children living at an orphanage for those infected with HIV know him, was dissatisfied with his life in America. Having grown up without a close-knit family of his own, he found his calling living and working with kids in need. Unlike others who simply passed through their lives, Rocky stayed, dedicating himself to their health and well-being. Despite formidable challenges, his playful spirit and determination in the face of despair proves to be an invaluable resource.” – Sundance

Presented in English and some Hindi with English subtitles, 93 minutes.
