In a world in which the rift between rich and poor has never been greater, comes a timely story offering hope. This inspirational film charts the life of Motalib Weijters, a remarkable man at home in two contrasting worlds: Bangladesh and the Netherlands. At just seven years of age, he was plucked from a Dhaka street and taken to the Netherlands. Seventeen years later, Motalieb goes back in search of his roots and family. There he begins a process that over ten years has ended up transforming a whole community. From street child to village "father", Motalib shows that even in the face of massive global problems, individuals can make a difference.
