Movie Info

The made-for-TV We are the Children stars Ally Sheedy as an idealistic doctor, working in Ethiopia. When famine hits the land, Sheedy struggles valiantly to protect the hundreds of men, women and children in the village where she works. While so doing, she falls in love with adventurous photojournalist Ted Danson. This story element smacks of contrivance and exploitation when compared to the rest of the film, which features terrific performances by Judith Ivey as a nun and Khadija Ali Ahmed as an anguished Ethiopian mother. Filmed on location in Northern Kenya, We are the Children was first telecast March 16, 1987.
