The Screen Guide

Strong-willed but naive Australian teenager, Helena McCarthy, nose-dives into volunteer work in Calcutta, India, one of the poorest and grubbiest cities on Earth. Big sister Claire on camera bears witness to Helena's struggles over the ensuing months as she gradually, at times painfully, comes to make sense of her overwhelming situation and find a place for herself with Mother Teresa's nuns.
