Hundreds of unwanted babies are abandoned on the streets of Seoul, South Korea, every year, forgotten by the surrounding culture.
The Drop Box is a documentary about the work of Pastor Lee Jong-rak and his heroic efforts to embrace and protect his community's most vulnerable children. By installing a drop box outside his home, Pastor Lee provides a safe haven to babies who would otherwise be abandoned on the streets to die. This documentary is a heart-wrenching exploration of the physical and emotional toll associated with providing refuge to save those deemed unwanted by society. But it's also a story of hope and a celebration of the reality that every human life is sacred, has a purpose and is worthy of love.
Available with English, French and Spanish sub-titles.
"They're not the unnecessary ones in the world. God sent them here for a purpose."
Pastor Lee Jong-rak
"When the church reaches out to rescue and embrace the weakest and most vulnerable in society, it can't help but push culture in a better, wiser direction. And The Drop Box is a remarkable film that shows Christian leaders and congregations how it's done. The story of Pastor Lee and his love for "discarded" children - especially children with disabilities - displays the power and influence of true Christian character."
-Joni Eareckson Tada, founder of Joni and Friends International Disability Center
"A tender, compelling story about the cry for human dignity, the beauty of mercy, and the necessity of hope."
