There is nothing more heartwarming than a story where a person is willing to give up the finer things in life to help those less fortunate. Angels in the Dust highlights one family that was willing to do just that (Oprah should have featured her on The Big Give as a story of inspiration).
Marion Cloete, a university-trained therapist, with her husband and three daughters— left a privileged life in a wealthy Johannesburg suburb to build Botshabelo, an extraordinary village and school that provides shelter, food, and education to more than 550 South African children.
The film highlights the selfless nature with which the family has embraced the orphans, treating all of them like their own and dealing with their issues the same way anyone in a family would.
The children are cute and full of energy and the joy you see in their faces is unmistakable. This is a great documentary with lots of lessons for all.
