THE WHITE KNIGHTS
Humanitarian NGO Move for Kids, led by the charismatic Jacques Arnault, travels to war-torn Darfur, offering a safe haven for children and orphans. But the kids are meant to be spirited away to France to be adopted by unsuspecting families. Based on the true story of Zoe’s Ark, who tried to abduct 103 kids from Chad to France in 2007.
