As the curtain rises, Hannah hesitantly steps onto the stage for her theatrical debut in college. Yet before she can utter her first lines, Hannah-unscripted-collapses in front of the stunned audience. After countless medical tests, all signs point to one underlying factor: Hannah's difficult birth. This revelation is nothing compared to what she then learns from her parents: she was actually adopted ... after a failed abortion attempt. Bewildered, angered, and confused, Hannah turns for support to Jason, her oldest friend. Encouraged by his adventurous spirit, Hannah joins his group of friends on a Spring Break road trip, embarking on a journey to discover her hidden past ... and find hope for her unknown future. In the midst of her incredible journey, Hannah learns that every life is beautiful.

User Review

Excellent film--moving and humorous--exceeded all expectations


This is an emotionally moving film that is entertaining for all ages. As the mother of three adopted children,I think this film is a must-see for all that want to understand more about the heart-ripping journey that all adopted children must take as they come to terms with being rejected by one family and wanted by another. It is subtle in its Christian message, but strong with the theme of unconditional love and forgiveness. The acting, directing, and producing is SUPERB, and it does not look like a film that skimped on budget in any of these areas. There was not a "dry eye in the house" because all ages were touched by this hurting teenager searching for meaning to her life. We have all been there. Please encourage others to see this movie so that it will be shown in more theaters across the country. THIS is the kind of movie that America is longing for.
