Released in 1986, the film documents Mother Teresa's work, as the Petrie sisters travelled with her across four continents over five years. It is considered “the most authentic” of the films made on her life. This powerful and inspiring film is considered the definitive portrait of the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Mother Teresa. Shot on the run over a period of 5 years in 10 countries on 4 continents, this award winning film follows Mother Teresa into the world's most troubled spots. From the war in Beirut to Guatemala under siege, from the devastated streets of Calcutta to the ghettoes of the South Bronx, the film is an experience of the way Mother Teresa transcends all political, religious and social barriers with her works of love.
