Rufus Hannah's remarkable true story of unspeakable exploitation and redemption, and the man who saved him.

Rufus Hannah was an alcoholic homeless person, exploited by a group of young people to do inhumane stunts for the infamous underground video series, Bumfights. Barry Soper was the businessman who saw Rufus’s humanity and through his mentorship, enabled him to get sober and build a productive life. This video tells their truly inspiring story and demonstrates the Torah principle that every person is created in the image of God. (Viewer discretion is advised.)
