Hope is the poor mans bread it has been said and here you get to experience it up close and personal where it is hard to ignore and watch it turn into hopelessness and then despair and hope again. The theme of this movie is simple. You and your family see and hear from each other every day and you have no reason to question the experience until it stops for whatever reason. Then, your unique story is presented and it unfolds. If an adult goes missing, well that's one set of feelings. If a child, that's another. When we stop to even consider the possibilities of what could have happened, we are overwhelmed and inundated with the worse thoughts imaginable including organ donor, sex trade and forced labor. If you just read what I wrote and monitored your own feelings while doing so...there is your movie. Watch this for this families story while we glimpse another world of poverty, different beliefs and one thing stands out...America is the hope of the world especially when you see how others live and work
