The story of a street boy in Nairobi, Kenya is the story of street children everywhere.
Setting out to make a film about street children across the globe, the filmmakers are hijacked by a filthy 13 year-old boy in Nairobi, Kenya. Belligerently stoned on shoe glue, Emmanuel will not be ignored. While his name means "God among us", his life, like all street children, is in constant danger. But who will notice if it is snuffed out?
RESCUING EMMANUEL follows a path that is surprising, disturbing but ultimately hopeful.
