Movies ~ ‘Noble’

Biography of Irish children’s rights activist, charity worker and writer Christina Noble.

Noble was born in Dublin, Ireland. Her father was an abusive alcoholic and her mother died when she was ten. She was sent to an orphanage, and dishonestly told that her three siblings were dead. She escaped and lived rough in Dublin, where she was gang-raped. Her baby son was forcibly adopted, against her will. She married and had three children, but was the victim of domestic abuse.

She visited Vietnam to care for abused and abandoned children after a recurring dream (during the Vietnam War) about them appealing for her help.
