Running time: 88 and 54 minutes

When Hilde Back sponsored a young, rural Kenyan student, she thought nothing of it. She certainly never expected to hear from him, but years later, she does. Now a Harvard graduate and a Human Rights Lawyer for the United Nations, Chris Mburu decides to find the stranger that changed his life. 

Inspired by her generosity he starts a scholarship program of his own, which gives a new generation of Kenyan students the hope of affording an education. With clarity and grace, A Small Act, bears witness to the ripple effect one singular action can have.
