CLEAN HANDS is a feature-length documentary, shot over a 7-year period. It tells a remarkable, true-life story about extreme poverty in the third world, set against family, dreams, and the innocence of children. For our main family, there is a dream-come-true rescue, which gives them a chance at a far better life, followed by some real-life challenges like those we all face. The film is set in Nicaragua, centered on the Lopez family. It is life in the third world as it is so rarely told: the good and the bad, presented with detail and intimacy.
