New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless spends time in some of the poorest areas of Bangladesh and meets the boy she has sponsored through World Vision.

This is one hell of a moving documentary. Yes it tugs at the heartstrings but it also shows how privileged we all are - even if we don't have a lot of money or materially own alot of possessions but we do have enough and after seeing this documentary, I think we all live like queens and kings. This documentary will upset some people - especially in videoclip #3 - Lucy meets a family that has not benefited (yet) from the World Vision program. It is truly heartbreaking. Please be aware that it will hit you in the gut (as it supposed to do). Lucy lost it completely in this clip.
