Summary This documentary contains perhaps the last authorized footage of Mother Teresa and is a testament to the legacy she left behind. It was filmed in Calcutta at The Home for the Dying and Destitute, the first refuge she established. Other such hospices followed, but the one in Calcutta remained her "first love."Seen through the eyes of the foreign volunteers, this film gives an intimate look at the love and care provided to the destitute ill. Mother Teresa s philosophy encouraged hard physical work and a "hands on" caring, so the ill do not feel isolated. The film also captures the spiritual uplift the volunteers feel through their service. Included is rare footage of Mother Teresa in her private Catholic chapel
