I saw "Jordan" at the Waterfront Film Festival over the weekend and
really enjoyed it; it was pretty easily the best of the films I had a
chance to see. The plot was solid and the acting was quite good (most
notably from the young girl who played Jordan -- that solid of acting
from a child is rare), but I was most impressed with the deliberate,
tense pacing of the film. Overall it was a very enjoyable thriller,
with a surprisingly poignant ending.
The filmmakers and child actress were present for the screening I attended and answered a few questions, which was a nice extra treat.
(sorry, I needed more lines to meet the minimum)

An accident occurs. A girl escapes the wrecked auto, where her mother
is trapped. She finds help. Her mother appears at the police station
and wants to take her but the girl insists the woman isn't her mother.
The paradox is tied up neatly at the end. This had the making of a very fine movie. My problem is now the answer came. The clues as to how the 'fake' mother came to this point, and how she pulled it off - if they were in the movie, you'd better not blink, because you'll miss it!
I hope I'm wrong and was repeatedly distracted from the clues. Perhaps you won't be, for as I say, the plot is unique and promising. Perhaps a studio will pick it and and fix the shortcomings
