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.

Excellent film--moving and humorous--exceeded all expectations

This is an emotionally moving film that is entertaining for all ages.
As the mother of three adopted children,I think this film is a must-see
for all that want to understand more about the heart-ripping journey
that all adopted children must take as they come to terms with being
rejected by one family and wanted by another. It is subtle in its
Christian message, but strong with the theme of unconditional love and
forgiveness. The acting, directing, and producing is SUPERB, and it
does not look like a film that skimped on budget in any of these areas.
There was not a "dry eye in the house" because all ages were touched by
this hurting teenager searching for meaning to her life. We have all
been there. Please encourage others to see this movie so that it will
be shown in more theaters across the country. THIS is the kind of movie
that America is longing for.
