Chiwetel Ejiofor directs and stars in this true story of a remarkable Malawian boy (Maxwell Simba) and his spirit of hope and ingenuity.
Inspired by a science book, 13-year-old William Kamkwamba builds a wind turbine to save his village from famine.
Avoiding sentimentality, Ejiofor nevertheless makes inspiring viewing from an environmental success story.
