Making the Crooked Straight

2008 USA
Duration: 28 mins


Simply put, Dr. Rick Hodes is a miracle worker. Deeply adhering to the belief that “He who saves one life, saves an entire world,” Hodes works in Ethiopia, taking care of children stricken with tuberculosis of the spine. If left untreated, this disease can cause massive humps to grow on the back, forcing its victims into a permanent forward-bending posture that can lead to death or a wicked deformity. Hodes has given countless children a new sense of self. And by watching Making the Crooked Straight, you will find a new sense of hope.
