Moving On There is Beauty in Risk

Run Time: 84 minutes
Language: English
Genre: Documentary

An American couple with average lives have their hearts stirred when they learn of the war plaguing Uganda, and decide to move with the intent of adopting and starting a non-profit. The people they encounter will alter the course of their lives forever.

MOVING ON steps into the lives of three incredible Ugandans- Betty, Charles, and Joyce. Although their stories begin with heartbreak, and loss- all have stories of hope.

This is NOT a story about war, injustice, poverty or despair. It is NOT a story of Westerners "saving" Africa. What Moving On beautifully uncovers is that a relationship with Africa is not one sided- the West will not rescue Africa. Their rescues are tied up in one another.
