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 ...
How did this film do so well at the box office, with so little fanfare, you ask? Let me give you four reasons:
1. It is beautifully done. Quality and content come together with professional actors, a meaningful storyline, and realistic character development. And the soundtrack? Just be prepared to have your phone ready; Shazam will be your best friend for the next hour and a half.
2. You can take anyone and everyone with you. Think about the last time you sat together with friends or family and didn’t feel the need to apologize, fast forward, or nervously laugh off an awkward scene.
