In Emmanuel's Gift, filmmakers Lisa Lax and Nancy Stern have uncovered a story as compelling as it is important. Narrated by Oprah Winfrey, the film chronicles the life of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah, a young Ghanaian man born with a severely deformed right leg, who today, against incalculable odds, is opening minds, hearts and doors-and effecting social and political change throughout his country.
If you are born disabled in Ghana, West Africa you are likely to be poisoned, or left to die by your family. If you are not poisoned or left for dead, you are likely to be hidden away in a room or spend your life begging on the streets. Of the twenty million people in Ghana, two million are disabled. This is the story of one disabled man whose mission and purpose is to change all that forever.
