Hope in the face of terror
8 May 2011 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

The film tells three stories about hope in the wake of tragic loss via terrorism.

We meet the Alderman's, who son Peter was killed on September 11. They took the money they got from the settlement and set up a foundation to help people in war torn countries with mental issues as a result of the violence they have experienced.

Ester Hyman's sister Miriam was killed in the London bombings and she has set up a trust to help a clinic in India specializing in preventing blindness.

Ben Tullipan was not far from a car bomb that went off in Bali. Despite losing both legs and being terribly burned he gives back by helping those who have lost limbs. He's also a champion golfer.

It will make you feel really good. Seriously go see this, I was thinking , okay cliché story, cliché telling... and then about twenty minutes in I changed my mind going I don't care how the story is, I just feel good and hopeful, and that's enough.

One of the finds of the Tribeca film festival.
