QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A college freshman sets out to learn about her origins after not only discovering that she was adopted, but also that she was the survivor of a failed abortion.
PLOT:
Hannah Lawson (RACHEL HENDRIX) is a college freshman whose role as lead in a theatrical play goes awry when she collapses on stage. A visit to the doctor reveals a bit of shocking news to her, and that is her physical ailments and maybe even her emotional ones likely stem from the fact that she was a preemie at birth. Even more surprising is that her parents, Jacob (JOHN SCHNEIDER) and Grace (JENNIFER PRICE), adopted her after she survived a failed abortion.

Accordingly, her lifelong friend, Jason Bradley (JASON BURKEY), proposes that she join him, his girlfriend Alanna (COLLEEN TRUSLER) and others, including friend Truman (AUSTIN JOHNSON) and his cousin, B-Mac (CHRIS SLIGH), as they drive to New Orleans for spring break. Jason does so after learning that Hannah was born in Mobile, Alabama, which is on the way.

A bit into the trip, he and Hannah end up on their own looking for the truth about her origin, all of which leads to former abortion clinic worker Mary Rutledge (JASMINE GUY), and finally to Hannah's birth mother, Cindy Hastings (SHARI RIGBY). As all of that unfolds, Hannah must figure out how to process this new information and what it means to her.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
