The acclaimed documentary ALMOST HOLY tells the story of Gennadiy Mohknenko, a Ukrainian pastor who has taken up the fight against child homelessness by forcibly abducting street kids and bringing them to his private rehabilitation center. Gennadiy's ongoing efforts and unabashedly tough love approach to his city's problems has made him a folk hero to some and a lawless vigilante to others. Using gripping footage that follows the self-appointed savior's mission over the course of 15 years, interspersing imagery from a popular Soviet animated TV show, ALMOST HOLY is a bold and captivating portrait of a man fighting to change Ukraine for the better as its place in a tense political landscape hangs in the balance.
