Beautifully Broken is an amazing, heart-grabbing movie with scope and universal truth based on the true story of the convergence of a refugee’s escape, a prisoner’s promise, and a daughter’s painful secret. In this touching, authentic true story of hope, three fathers fight to save their families. Their lives become intertwined in an unlikely journey across the globe, where they learn the healing power of forgiveness and reconciliation.
Beautifully Broken in theaters August 24th, is a true story of three fathers (one American and two Rwandan) who will stop at nothing to protect their children. In this true story, a child sponsorship through Compassion International changes real lives of real people, who include the giver and the recipient.
The story begins with William Mwizerwa who is a father who with his family, are fleeing the Rwandan Genocide. William, his wife, and his daughter barely narrowly escape death from soldiers’ machetes and guns. In a Kenyan refugee camp, William learns that he can participate in a program that can take him to America, where once he establishes residency, he can bring his family.
Despite the hardship of leaving his family, William goes to America and meets Randy Hartley, who is facing challenges with his family. Randy’s daughter Andrea is becoming increasingly rebellious due to a secret assault that she shares only with a child sponsorship pen pal, a Rwandan girl, Umuhoza, whose family has also been affected by the Rwandan genocide.
Out of a growing friendship, Randy and William inspire and help each other to work to keep their families together and eventually develop an outreach center to assist refugee families from war-torn countries, which eventually brings William’s wife and daughter to America. Randy asks William to guide his family to Rwanda for Andrea to see her Rwandan pen pal. Randy and William’s family go to Rwanda where more trials, but amazing redemption awaits. William learns that if everyone believed in the concept of “an eye for an eye” the whole world would go blind.
Randy Hartley, a financial advisor from Nashville, had his life changed after a chance connection between a Rwandan refugee and the Rwandan girl his family sponsored. The connection and journey of these American and Rwandan families has been produced into a major motion picture, Beautifully Broken. Hartley is a partner in Thoroughbred Financial Services, LLC and is a producer known for the documentary, Through the Valley.
