Came From Nothing is a documentary film that chronicles the life story of Benjamin "Big Mouth Ben" Graham, an entrepreneur and motivational entertainer who owns a convenience store on historic Auburn Avenue in Atlanta, Georgia. Big Mouth Ben overcame 17 years of addiction and homelessness on Auburn Avenue to open the store just two blocks from the same bridge under which he once slept, and one block from the birth home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The film was produced by Georgia Tech students Nick Tippens and Ali Yildirim as part of a project studio course titled "Sweet Auburn: Birthplace of Ideas."
