It’s something that is rarely discussed, but sometimes children do survive abortion attempts. It’s impossible to know exactly how many survive. Some of them escaped relatively unharmed. Others are profoundly injured by their abortions. This is the story of a girl who survived abortion.
From award-winning directors Jon and Andrew Erwin comes OCTOBER BABY, a groundbreaking, life-affirming movie premiering in theaters nationwide March 23, 2012. Provident Films—known for its association with such hit faith movies as COURAGEOUS and FIREPROOF—and Samuel Goldwyn Films (distributor of such hit faith films as FIREPROOF, AMAZING GRACE and FACING THE GIANTS among others) have signed on to market and distribute.
A production of the Erwin Brothers and American Family Studios, OCTOBER BABY weaves a dramatic, romantic, humorous story of one young woman’s search for the truth after a life-changing discovery rocks her world.
“OCTOBER BABY is the story of 19-year-old Hannah, who finds out she is adopted and is the survivor of an attempted abortion,” said co-director and co-writer Jon Erwin. “So, she goes on a road trip to find answers, locate her birth mother and, ultimately, discover how powerful forgiveness can be.”
OCTOBER BABY offers viewers an enjoyable, entertaining, intensely human film about friends hitting the road together and finding more than they bargained for: adventure, romance, truth . . . and the power to forgive. But, the film is more than that—it tells the story of one young woman’s journey based on hundreds of stories of abortion survivors. OCTOBER BABY honestly and evenhandedly invites audiences to explore their own views of life’s value and the importance of their choices.
“Like all good films, OCTOBER BABY entertains, encourages and challenges audiences,” said Provident Films Senior Vice President Ben Howard. “Long after leaving the theater, viewers will continue conversations that OCTOBER BABY ignites.”
OCTOBER BABY marks the feature film debut of the Erwin Brothers, multiple Dove Award winners for music videos featuring hit contemporary Christian artists such as Casting Crowns, Michael W. Smith and Francesca Battistelli. Jon Erwin and Theresa Preston co-wrote the film.
