Chris' life in a Kenyan village was transformed when he won the sponsorship of a Swedish woman - Hilde Back - who he knew only by name. Now a graduate from Harvard and a Human Rights lawyer working for the UN, he has set up his own education programme for Kenyan children in her name. Weaving between the lives of Chris, Hilde and three children competing for Chris' fund, this is a moving testament to the selfless act of giving.
