Storyline

An 11 year-old girl searches for a missing rare book from her grandmother's (Holland Taylor) library and tries to understand why her family is fractured the way it is during a memorable summer at an isolated New Mexico adobe. While her mother (Kelly Lynch), like astronaut Michael Collins, goes to the dark side of the moon for a leukemia treatment, Ella must journey on her own to the strange moon of her grandmother's world. Ella's father, (Sean Patrick Flanery) orbits his daughter, as Ella befriends Miguel and Rosie to find acceptance of her mother's fate. Emotional connections are reshaped, and the music of Patrick Neil Doyle helps tell this unusual story. In an era when many actresses are speaking about the dearth of women in various production roles, behind the scenes of this family film were many women - the director, the DoP, the Editor, the PPS, and 3 of the 4 credited screenwriters. This was the result of finding the best people for the project. Additionally, there was a great ...

Family friendly young teen predictably saves the day and more
27 February 2019 | by jrneptuneSee all my reviews

Story starts of fairly simply, young girl with a Mom fighting cancer and a Dad who is away goes and visits her Grandmother and finds out the family has other issues going on as well.

A rare book is missing and presumed stolen and the mystery starts. As she searches for the books she unravels some of the family issues that have been going on.

How does it end? I bet you can guess. Worth watching for a family with young teenage girls and boys.
