In a trying time for many people across Rhode Island, the United States, and the entire world, it is not uncommon to look to film and other forms of entertainment for inspiration and hope. For those looking for an uplifting story of positivity, kindness, and goodness in the face of adversity, we highly recommend watching Least Among Saints.

Least Among Saints is the story of a struggling veteran’s journey to redemption through his service to an orphaned child. It is a moving tale with important messages that are highly relevant to society today. The film focuses heavily on human compassion, healing through others, and overcoming mental health struggles (in this case, PTSD). It also highlights the difficulties faced by some veterans after returning from combat.

Returning home to an uncertain future, combat veteran Anthony Hayward (Martin Papazian) believes there is no hope for himself. Yet when a troubled young neighbor, Wade (Tristan Lake Leabu), calls out for help, Anthony cannot turn away. To the dismay of the boy’s social worker (Laura San Giacomo) and an unlikely friend in the Chief of Police (Charles S. Dutton), Anthony sets out on a fool’s quest to help this heartbroken and hard-to-reach child find his long-lost father. In the midst of this new mission – the first that seems to matter since his return – Anthony begins to come to grips with both the costs of war and the universal power of human connection.

Martin “Marty” Papazian did much more than star as Anthony in “Least Among Saints.” The triple-threat also wrote and directed the film and has had a hand in creating a number of movies and TV Shows since. The film itself carries even more weight when considering Papazian’s background. The values of selfless service to others are so important to

him that he became a full-time paramedic/firefighter, currently fighting the wildfires that are devastating California.

When watching Least Among Saints, the message of serving others clearly comes from an honest place as it is told by a person who lives by those same values. Papazian’s own acting as well as moving performances from Tristan Lake Leabu, Laura San Giacomo, and Charles S. Dutton add to the story Papazian is telling through this film and bring its positive messages and values to life.
