This film is not currently scheduled to screen at New Park.
In this film that critics are raving about, we follow several adults and one bright-eyed baby boy from his birth to the moment he finally lands an adopted home.
Intelligently observed and backed by a strong cast, this well-performed ensemble piece oscillates between a documentary-style study of the French social care system and a heart-wrenching.
Hopping from one character to another, with an infant providing the narrative line, we dig deep into the legal and psychological particulars of France’s anonymous adoption system (called “l’accouchement sous X”), where mothers who wish to give away their new-borns can do so without identifying themselves.
