Set in Kenya, Mully is the incredible and inspiring true-life story of Charles Mutua Mully who was abandoned by his parents at the age of six and went from begging in the streets to become a multi-millionaire entrepreneur. At the pinnacle of his success, a defining moment led to a dramatic turn in his life once more and he shocked friends and family alike by giving away all his wealth to rescue, adopt and educate thousands of homeless kids living in the streets.
Executive produced by Paul Blavin and directed by American filmmaker Scott Haze, Mully captures the emotionally-charged turbulent twists and turns of Charles Mully’s life with dramatic reenactments of his youth and candid interviews with his wife and children who were initially opposed to Charles’ determination to turn their lives upside down for the sake of helping strangers. At times, the film plays like a scripted Hollywood feature simply because this extraordinary man follows no other path but the one his heart tells him to follow. Having created the Mully Children’s Family Group of Homes and Schools in 1989, Charles Mully and his wife, Ester, have adopted, fed and educated over 12,000 orphans, creating the world’s largest family.
Mully received numerous honors and awards, including the Austin Film Festival’s Audience Award and a 2016 Hot Docs Top Ten Audience Favorite.
