The Drop Box (DVD)
A story of hope-a reminder that every human life is sacred and worthy of love.
One winter, a pastor finds an abandoned infant on his church steps, and builds ‘a drop box’ to rescue any future foundlings.
With tears in his eyes, Pastor Lee Jong-rak reads a note from a desperate young woman who placed her newborn baby inside the drop box he has installed on the side of his home: “I have made a simple mistake that I cannot bear or handle. I’m very sorry. I am sincerely sorry.”
Pastor Lee has received too many notes like this. Due to a complex number of factors, including the stigma associated with unwed motherhood, widespread aversion to children born with disabilities, and complicated and cumbersome in-country adoption laws, many newborn babies have been abandoned on the streets of Seoul, South Korea, in recent years.
“The Drop Box” tells the story of Pastor Lee’s heroic efforts to embrace and protect the most vulnerable members of society. It is a harrowing and sometimes heart-wrenching exploration of the physical, emotional and financial toll associated with providing refuge to those deemed undesirable and unlovable by the surrounding culture. Ultimately it is a story of hope, a view into the heart of God Himself, who “sets the lonely in families” (Psalm 68:6)
