Doyle and see some incredible moments about a man who made it his lifelong purpose to inspire and help a city and the people within it in this documentary. As a young priest, Father Michael J.

These traits were put to the test in Camden, where he found himself confronted with urban decay and despair. Industries were closing and people were leaving. Crime, drug use, the breakdown of families, the proliferation of hopelessness—this was Camden’s reality.
