Kenyan actor and producer, Benjamin Onyango, is the hero in “Beautifully Broken”, a new film set to hit cinemas on August 24.
This Inspirational and true story follows the lives of three fathers who fight to save their families, even as their lives become intertwined in an unlikely global journey, where they get to learn the healing powers of forgiveness and reconciliation.
Filmed on location in Port Alfred, South Africa, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the film is based on a real life event where Onyango portrays the real-life William Mwizerwa.

The film has an ensemble of casts which include Scott William Winters (Lethal Weapon series, Good Will Hunting), Benjamin Onyango (God’s Not Dead, Inception), Emily Hahn (Toy Story 3, Fresh Off the Boat) and Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight, The Expendables).
