An animated film without words being used to promote Father Joe’s Village and highlighting the plight – and potential – of San Diego’s growing homeless population will leave you speechless.
“Shine” takes place in a world of minerals and gems. It portrays a lump of coal, Nicoal, left alone in the cold and rain. Just when all hope seems lost, compassionate neighbors from Father Joe’s Villages welcome and embrace Nicoal, compressing her with respect and kindness.
