Milton and Fred Ochieng’ are two brothers from Lwala, Kenya whose village sent them to America to become doctors. But after losing both parents to AIDS they are left with a heartbreaking task: to return home and finish the health clinic their father started before getting sick. Unable to raise enough money on their own, the brothers are joined by students, politicians, and a rock band who launch a fund raising drive among young people across the United States.

Honoring a Father’s Dream: Sons of Lwala is the true story of two brothers whose love and commitment to their father changed the future of their home village.

This film will be screened at the Lubbock campus only, but is available for checkout by faculty, staff, and students at the other TTUHSC campuses.
