Three Families. Two Worlds. One Incredible True Story.
Feature Film Beautifully Broken Coming to Theaters August 24
Beautifully Broken is an inspiring true story of three families, worlds apart, whose paths seem unlikely to cross. Each family faces a crisis beyond its control, whether facing the terror of war or the secret nightmare of a teenaged daughter. Three fathers are forced to make difficult decisions to save and protect their families, setting in motion a series of events that leads to their lives becoming intertwined in ways they could have never predicted or imagined. Along the way, they learn first-hand the power of forgiveness and reconciliation. Outreach's own Ebralie Mwizerwa, her husband William and the true story of their family's escape from the genocide in Rwanda are a vital part of this inspirational feature film, which will be released in over 600 theaters on August 24th. For the last 15 years, Ebralie devoted most of her time at Outreach serving vulnerable children in Africa.
