The powerful true story of Graham and Gladys Staines, Australian missionaries who served the tribal poor and lepers in a remote part of India. Accused of illegally converting patients, Graham was murdered by Hindu extremists, together with his two young boys.

Finding the strength to publicly forgive the murderers, Gladys continued to serve; she received one of India's highest civilian honours in 2005.
As the social fabric of life in rural India disintegrates in the late 1990s, journalist Manav Banerjee (Sharman Joshi) moves with his pregnant wife to the State of Orissa in hope of a better life and the promise of a lucrative career. When speculation mounts that local Australian missionary Graham Staines (Stephen Baldwin) is illegally proselytising leprosy patients, Manav agrees to investigate undercover for the newspaper. What he finds is a series of revelations that are difficult to fathom and even harder to explain, and Manav is forced to make a choice between his own ambition and the truth. In the end, his actions spark a tragic event that is felt around the world.

Based on a true story and shot on location in India, "THE LEAST OF THESE" beautifully illustrates the power of love, hope and forgiveness to overcome hate.
