College Freshman Hannah (Rachel Hendrix) is suffering growing pains like any other late teen, but she has additional issues with epilepsy and asthma, among others. Her parents take her to the doctor where she learns a shocking secret about her birth which may be related to the illnesses she is suffering. She joins up with a bunch of her friends and heads on out on road trip to find whatever truth she can about her origins and the secrets that she never knew.
I had no expectations coming into this film. I was blown away. In fact, I was so impressed that I had to watch it twice before returning it. This film touched me to the core, mostly due to the strength of the story, but also for the excellent acting by Rachel Hendrix and her parents, especially Dad, played marvelously by John Schneider. When it became apparent what the subject of the story was, I expected it to turn preachy and pushy, but it did not. It was very fair handed, and very sensitive to the people who have real life stories like this. It was so strong, that I found tears rolling down my cheeks at the end. What a marvelous story this is, and such a very, very well done film. I highly recommend this movie as one that is very touching and reaches to your heart. I don’t want to say much more about the content, as the less you know going in, the better, not that it is highly surprising or anything, but the impact of the story is much better if you have less info going in. I really enjoyed this very much, and I recommend you check this one out. It’s definitely one that will change your heart. Very well done.
