Watch the official Movie Trailer of “The Least of These The Graham Staines Story 2019” Now.
As the social fabric of life in rural India disintegrates in the late 1990s, journalist Manav Banerjee (Sharman Joshi) moves with his pregnant wife to the town of Orissa in hope of a better life and the promise of a lucrative career. When speculation mounts that local Australian missionary Graham Staines (Stephen Baldwin) is illegally proselytizing leprosy patients, Manav agrees to investigate undercover for the newspaper. What he finds is a series of revelations that are difficult to fathom and even harder to explain, and Manav is forced to make a choice between his own ambition and the truth. In the end, his actions spark a tragic event that is felt around the world. Based on a true story and shot on location in India, “THE LEAST OF THESE” beautifully illustrates the power of love, hope and forgiveness to overcome hate.

Another film heading to theaters in the new year is the true story of missionary Graham Staines who was martyred in India in 1999. Titled “Staines,” the movie shares the story leading up to the murders of the Australian Christian missionary and his sons, Philip, 10, and Timothy, 6, who were killed after serving as missionaries to a community of lepers in India.
Featured in the film is Stephen Baldwin (“God’s Plan”), (Shari Rigby (“October Baby”), and Sharman Joshi.
“I know God called me to the ‘Staines’ movie,” Baldwin told The Christian Post in an interview earlier this year where he described the film as an answer to prayer and “empowered by the Holy Spirit.”
