Storyline

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. Written by Jon Erwin

Trivia

The abortion that Hannah and her brother survived is based on a 1991 case in New York City, in which Dr. Abu Hayat removed the arm from a fetus, then sent the mother home with instructions to return the next day to have the procedure completed. The mother went into labor and delivered her living, maimed infant in a hospital. See more »

well-made, heartwarming, life-changing
23 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am so glad we went to see this movie last night. I have no personal history with either abortion or adoption, and this movie let me see into the real world of both of these experiences. The good, the bad, and the ugly. The acting was phenomenal. I loved seeing familiar faces from back in the day - Bo Duke from Dukes of Hazzard and Whitley from It's a Different World. Chris Sligh from American Idol was really funny; my husband and I were laughing out loud. Who knew he had an amazing voice and could act so well too? I personally would not take my children to see this movie, but it would be appropriate for anyone older than 12, in my opinion. I wish they would make more movies like this one in Hollywood. Finally something different from the usual story lines. It's refreshing! I will definitely be buying this movie when it comes out on DVD. It's life-changing. It reminded me to appreciate my parents and family.
