Synopsis

Documentary by Jennifer Arnold looking at the effect caused by a Swedish woman who sponsors the education of a Kenyan student. When Hilde Back sponsored a young boy in rural Kenya to go through school, she never expected to hear anything more from him. But years later, Chris Mburu - now a Harvard graduate and a human rights lawyer for the United Nations - decides to track down the stranger who made it all possible. Inspired by her act of generosity, Chris starts a scholarship programme in Hilde's honour for children at the small Kenyan primary school where his own education began.
