Title: MOTHER TERESA: IN THE NAME OF GOD'S POOR
Description:
Geraldine Chaplin gives an outstanding performance as Mother Teresa, an extraordinary woman who dedicated her life to the dying and destitute and transformed the world with her courage, faith and love. Calcutta, 1946 - As the slum erupts in violence, a nun answers a call from God to ease the suffering of the poor. Leaving the safety of her own world, Mother Teresa enters the city's wretched slums armed with nothing more than faith and determination. Although at first there is great opposition, she soon begins a groundbreaking ministry in Calcutta's war-torn streets that will transcend all cultural and religious biases. As news of her work and her message of unconditional love spreads, so does her fame and in 1979 she is honored with the Nobel Peace Prize. She is known the world over simply as Mother Teresa but to millions of people whose hearts she touched, she will be remembered as a great humanitarian who inspired the world.
