In the fall of 2009 Korean freelance filmmaker and once photogenXer Sye Young Park spent his time in the margins of Cape Town, South Africa engaging in a conversation about faith in the Townships. As the months went by, his journey and conversation crossed paths with a number of kindred-hearts also struggling to relate to God amid the social and economic woes of a once forces settlement called Capricorn.
The following documentary is a story of faith and hope despite brokenness and circumstance. It is a call for social uplift and empowerment in the likeness of Jesus and gives a poignant picture of what Jesus may have meant when he said "blessed are the poor".
We present it here in it's entirety as a reminder to us all that the status-quo need not stay the same and when people of faith bind their hearts together across social and economic boundaries lives will change.
