Directed by Scott Haze 2017 1 hour, 21 minutes Abandoned as a child in Kenya, Charles Mully transforms his life from beggar to businessman. Working hard to “have it all,” and finding that it’s not enough, Mully looks for a way to give back. His story is chronicled in the new film “Mully” being released just in time for National Adoption Awareness Month. In the movie, Mully narrates his story of being lost and finding redemption with the help of his church, faith, wife and children. But despite being a successful businessman and father to eight children, Mully struggles to find peace in his life. It isn’t until a negative encounter with some Nairobi street children that Mully finds his new purpose. He begins bringing in children off the street and into his family before eventually founding the Mully Children’s Family orphanage. “Mully” is an inspirational tale of one man working to use his experiences for greater good. His wife and children also share their perspective throughout the movie and the struggles they faced getting behind Mully’s vision of helping Kenya’s street children. Uniquely, Mully’s model for change was not leaning on Western donations, but instead creating a self-sustaining model that would provide for his family and the children he brought into this family, which to-date is greater than 10,000 children. “Mully” is an inspirational story that serves as a prime example of how one person can make a difference in the lives of many. — Reviewed By Kim Phagan-Hansel
