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.
I watched this movie last night and was emotionally moved by it. In fact it is the reason for my puffy eyes and headache this morning. It gripped me in the beginning and never let go til the end. I don’t remember ever hearing about or seeing a preview for this movie and just came across it while browsing Netflix. I decided to give it a chance. I’m so happy I did. One of the best movies I’ve seen this year (even though it was made in 2011).
