Ad Feedback

A documentary about a South Korean pastor who rescues disabled babies has won the $101,000 grand prize at the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival.

The film "The Drop Box" was produced by 22-year-old filmmaker Brian Ivie.

The documentary tells the story of Pastor Lee Jong-Rak, whose church in Seoul accepts dozens of unwanted children.
    
Pastor Lee built a drop box in the wall of his home for people who could no longer care for their disabled babies.
    
Accepting the prize Saturday evening, Ivie promised to "steward this investment," saying he would rather tell "the plainest truth with $100,000 than the most sophisticated technological lie with $10 million or $100 million."
