Far from their own country, a determined band of Polish missionaries have given up their comfortable lives to heed their call in remote Papua New Guinea. There, they go beyond preaching gospel or handing out bibles – perhaps beyond even religion itself – to work with the Papuans towards a better life. Over a number of years, the missionaries build roads, hospitals and schools, while also struggling with the effects of poverty, disease and a lack of formal education in the young state. This Polish-Australian documentary delivers an uplifting example of how faith-based aid workers from wealthy nations can help those in poorer countries.
