Hoboku, a non-profit organization in southwestern Japan, has provided support for homeless people and others in need for over 30 years. Okuda Tomoshi, a pastor, leads the group. Its many efforts to help those left behind by society include running a soup kitchen and visiting people on the streets at night. Working for Hoboku, many of the NPO's employees in their 20s and 30s have found their life's purpose, along with help and guidance from the people they encounter. We look at the deep bonds that have developed between the homeless and these young people.
