Description
A journey of hope, love, and unimaginable possibilities.

When the spirit holds fast to hope and courage, the impossible becomes possible. Zemene is a shy 10-year-old living in rural Ethiopia with a rare, life-threatening, curvature of the spine that limits her world, when a chance encounter with an American doctor enables her to secure medical attention. With her physical limitations lifted, and the confirmation that her life matters, she blossoms into a confident young woman, using her newly found capabilities to bring hope back to her village. Gorgeously filmed in the Ethiopian countryside, Zemene is a poignant testament to the strength of the human spirit – and a powerful depiction of how much impact one person can have on another’s life. - Pia Chamberlain
