*** (three stars)
Rocky Braat is a hero, but no plaster saint, in this sweet as-it-happens documentary. Braat, a listless American traveling the world, ended up in India at an orphanage for HIV-positive children -- working as a volunteer, returning to the States when his visa periodically runs out. Director Steve Hoover is a friend of Braat's, so the film has an intimate, loosey-goosey feel. The pace is sometimes meandering, but that's weirdly fitting for a wanderer finally finding his place in the world.
