Netflix and IMDB include this summary of the movie:

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

Against all the odds, a thirteen-year old boy in Malawi invents an unconventional way to save his family and village from famine.---NETFLIX

William Kamkuamb was born in the country of Malawi, in Africa. When he was fourteen years old, a terrible drought hit the village where he lived. People had nothing to eat and drink. Being an excellent student and very fond of physics, the guy decides to save his native village from starvation. In the library he finds scientific books on physics. He studied the books and the guy got an idea to build a wind generator.---IMDB

I look forward to showing this movie and the discussion.
