Synopsis

A young girl named Heidi who lives with her mentally disabled mother travels across the country to find out about her and her mother’s past.


Movie Message

Heidi is a young girl 12 years of age, who wants to know about her mother’s past. Traveling all alone and not knowing what she will find, she leaves Reno with only a handful of photographs to go on and heads out for Liberty, New York, to find out the truth.

This is a heartwarming story of a girl trying to find out who she is, laced with love and the truth of how she came to be in Reno along with her family history. “So B. It” will open your heart to the problems of mental illness and family. Sometimes family does not share the same blood, but it includes the people who share a person’s life.

 

We are proud to award the Dove Family-Approved Seal for 12-plus due to the issues in this movie about mental illness that younger children may not understand.
