This is a powerful examination of the effects of divorce told by kids for kids that the whole family will benefit from. Witness insightful testimonies as the kids face the initial trauma, work through the pain, learn how to heal and be happy.
This documentary presents a compelling look at divorce. Most approaches to this delicate subject are focused on the husband and wife and how to get through the pain and suffering of separation and divorce. There are plenty of resources and self-help guides for the adults to make the best of this painful situation. This documentary, however, is totally about the impact of divorce on the most vulnerable participants – the kids. It’s not filled with pundits offering sage wisdom on how kids should act or feel. It is presented solely for kids, by kids based on their personal experiences.
These kids present transparent and honest perspectives on what it’s like to be helpless bystanders while their lives are torn apart by fighting or uncaring parents. Their emotions are raw and their intelligent perspectives are inspiring. The story moves through the tunnels of despair when, as one child put it, “I felt like I had whiplash from a car accident.” But, it also comes out the other end with acceptance and hope for the future.
We heartily recommend this film to any person or family anticipating, or going through the difficulty of divorce. We award this film the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. However, since it includes insightful comments from very young children, care should be given to the emotional stages of the children who will watch it.
