The Family I Had
What begins as a seemingly isolated incident of a 13-year-old boy's shocking murder of his 4-year-old sister slowly dissolves into an illuminating study of a family fraught with mental illness, intra-family violence, addiction, love and fear. In the aftermath of losing both of her children, Charity’s ability to love and forgive her son is profoundly tested as she redefines her role in the world. We follow her as she retraces her family’s past and navigates an uncertain future. Through this family we gain a deeper appreciation for and understanding of forgiveness.
