Opening to select theaters nationwide on March 23, “October Baby” blends the perfect amount of humor, honesty and hope into a beautiful story of love, life and the power of forgiveness.
The film begins with an introduction to 19-year-old college freshman Hannah (Rachel Hendrix), who suddenly loses consciousness out at the beginning of her college play. After a night in the hospital, she seeks answers from her physician and her parents Grace and Jacob (played by Jennifer Price and Hollywood veteran John Schneider).
Hannah soon discovers not only that she is adopted, but that her long history of health issues are all tied to her premature birth – a premature birth caused by a failed abortion.
Desperate for answers, Hannah accepts the help of her oldest friend Jason (Jason Burkey), and hitches a ride with a group of college students on their way to Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Hannah hopes a side trip to Mobile, Alabama where she was born will reveal the answers she needs.
