The World's Greatest Home

The 'World's Greatest Home' is a beautiful story about the journey of two children from remarkably different backgrounds and the exquisite world they build together. Set in Guerrero, Mexico, it begins with the protagonist Levi, a child separated from his family in Guerrero, who is now forced to scrummage through scraps to put a meal on his table. As he encounters David, a hometown boy from a seemingly high income family, he is introduced to a stunning world filled with superheroes, delicious food, swimming pools, amusement games and lots of color.

Director Statement

This film is inspired by the true story of an orphaned boy who was abandoned at a very young age. After spending almost two years alone, Selvin, by the grace of a modest and loving family, was adopted.

By the time I met him, he was already a delightful teenager. When I spoke with him about his life, he told me of how he had the greatest home in the world, and that is something he truly did, as you'll see in the film. In spite of facing trauma in his early years, he is the happiest kid I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

This film is a glimpse into his eyes. If you would like it to be part of your reality, consider adoption. You'll see a whole new world you never knew existed.
