Children of the Light is the first film to tell the life story of Nobel Prize winner Desmond Tutu, one of the fathers of modern day South Africa. With extensive archival footage, family photos and never before seen interviews, Children of the Light is a personal look into the legacy of one of the greatest peacemakers of our time. Desmond Tutu describes his personal South African journey; the film is narrated by his daughter, Naomi Tutu. Searing images from the fifty year movement against apartheid bring the struggle for freedom in South Africa to life. Tutu reflects on the importance of courage, community, tenacity, faith, and patience in any successful social movement. We then go around the globe to meet five young activists, inspired by Tutu, who are creating change in their own communities.
