The Christian film of 2012, ‘October Baby’ is a love story inter-woven with a compelling message about the sanctity of life and the truth that everyone is beautiful in God's eyes.
Following a sudden health trauma, first year college student Hannah discovers she is not only adopted, but that her birth-mother attempted to abort her. Hannah is one of hundreds of abortion survivors. Filled with mixed emotions, Hannah embarks on a journey with her college friends to unravel her hidden past and find hope for her future. Her travels to self-discovery are rocky and uncertain, but ever so important to uncover the truth.
From the famous verse in Psalm 139: “You saw me before I was born...” and truth that some hundreds of attempted terminations result in a live birth, the film makers have created a moving story that is part self discovery, part road trip movie, part redemption story. If there is one film you and your family should watch, it’s ‘October Baby’. The story is captivating and the message is heart-breaking but also heart-affirming.
Subtitles available on DVD: English, Spanish, French, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, Croatian, Italian, Polish and German.
This DVD is Region 2, and will play on a UK DVD player.
Running Time: 109 minutes
Dove Rating: "Family-Approved" - Recommended for ages 12 and over.

"You saw me before I was born." Psalm 139:16 (NLT)
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 finds that life can be so much more than what you have planned.
Hannah: ‘Im Hannah, and this is my story and ...it’s not what you think... three weeks ago I found out that my entire life is a lie, so I went on a trip...
< Song fades in, then out >
This is my only chance to find out who I really am!’
In Car) Car Driver: ‘I just wanted to let you know I think it’s really brave - what you’re doing.’
In Police Station) Police Officer: ‘If you find your mother, what will you say? I’m just... I’m just curious.’
Hannah: ‘I don’t know.’
Outside House)Car Driver: ‘Hey dude! Her dad’s going to kill you man!’
(In the street)Jason: ‘Mr Lawson, I just -’
Mr Lawson (angrily): ‘I SAID, stay out of it!’
(In the house) Hannah: ‘Hey Jason, why have you always been there for me?’
(In a different place) Crying Lady: ‘I know where your birth mother is.’
(In Church) Church Minister: ‘You have the power to forgive - to choose to forgive.’

"October Baby touches home and leaves imprints on your heart!"
Stacy Massey, Abortion Recovery InterNational
This film seeks to examine the issue of abortion and its implications in a sensitive way. While it is clearly ‘pro-life’ it is also non-judgemental, advocating forgiveness and grace as solutions to those emotionally hurt by abortion.
At 107 minutes in length, the story is far from superficial - time is taken to give the plot authenticity and depth.
Although ‘October Baby’ was made in America, it is accessible for British and European viewers not only because the plot has transcendent relevance. Subtitles are available in English, Spanish, French, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, Croatian, Italian, Polish and German.
The DVD is rated 12 because the theme is fairly mature and parts of the film are quite emotionally charged. Eden.co.uk provides ‘October Baby’ in DVD region 2, which is suitable for all British DVD players, computers and games consoles.
Phenomenal success experienced by this film doesn’t just line the purses of those who made it - October Baby Ministries seek to assist women and families experiencing a tough pregnancy situation by offering advice and giving contact information for helpful and relevant organisations.
The movie isn’t all crushing heartbreak and moral dilemma. As the film’s strap-line declares: ‘Every life is beautiful’. Drawing on Psalm 139: 16 “You saw me before I was born...” as justification, film maker Andrew Erwin says, “The main thing we wanted to confront with this film was indifference and apathy. We want people to talk about the issue.”
Seeing the film as an opportunity to ‘give back’, ten percent of the profits are going to the 'Every Life is Beautiful' Fund, which distributes money to frontline organisations helping women facing crisis pregnancies.
The brothers, who list Frank Capra and the Coen brothers among their film-making influences, say October Baby has powerful redemptive themes: “It’s not about pointing fingers at abortion providers, or women, but about forgiveness.”
The October Baby DVD, and the paperback book of the film, releases in the UK on 11 September 2012. Jon Erwin says, “people just really identified with the film emotionally... I hope there can be a surge of conversation.” – Les Ellison.
