Nicknamed “G-Dog” by the residents of the Boyle Heights neighborhood in which his original parish was located, the remarkable Jesuit priest Father Gregory Boyle first founded Homeboy Industries, the groundbreaking intervention program for at-risk youth and former gang members, in 1992. Since then, Father Greg and his devoted staff have built Homeboy up from a single bakery to several businesses, all revolving around the motto “Jobs not Jails.” When hard economic times threaten his good work, the heroic Father Greg must fight to keep his programs afloat in this moving and inspiring film from Oscar-winning filmmaker Freida Mock.
