From Slave to Saint; The Story of Josephine Bakhita, patron saint of Sudan
190 Minutes

Born in a village in Sudan, kidnapped by slavers, often beaten and abused, and later sold to Federico Marin, a Venetian merchant, Bakhita then came to Italy and became the nanny servant of Federico's daughter, Aurora, who had lost her mother in birth.  Bakhita gradually comes closer to God with the help of the kind village priest, and embraces the Catholic faith.  Pope John Paul II declared her a saint in the year 2000.
