Description

Machine Gun Preacher is the inspirational true story of Sam Childers; a former drug-dealing criminal who undergoes an astonishing transformation and finds an unexpected calling as the savior of hundreds of kidnapped and orphaned children.

Gerard Butler delivers a searing performance as Childers; the impassioned founder of the Angels of East Africa rescue organization in Golden Globe-nominated director Marc Forster's moving story of violence and redemption.

When ex-biker-gang member Sam Childers (Butler) makes the life-changing decision to go to East Africa to help repair homes destroyed by civil war; he is outraged by the unspeakable horrors faced by the region's vulnerable populace; especially the children.

Ignoring the warnings of more experienced aid workers; Sam breaks ground for an orphanage where it's most needed in the middle of territory controlled by the brutal Lord's Resistance Army (LRA); a renegade militia that forces youngsters to become soldiers before they even reach their teens.

But for Sam; it is not enough to shelter the LRA's intended victims.

Determined to save as many as possible; he leads armed missions deep into enemy territory to retrieve kidnapped children; restoring peace to their lives and eventually his own.

The explosive; real-life tale of a man who has rescued over a thousand orphans from starvation; disease and enslavement; Machine Gun Preacher also stars Michelle Monaghan and Kathy Baker.
