For survivors of the Holocaust, liberation was both an incredible moment and a devastating one. It marked the beginning of a life-long struggle. Most wanted to go home, but there was no home left in devastated post-war Europe. Many came to America and wanted to tell people about their experiences, but were silenced.

You're in America now, put it behind you is what they were told. The women Kean follows became mothers and wives with successful careers, but never fully healed from the scars of the past.

  • 5 stars "I felt like I went through an emotional journey, through the eyes of a mother as well as a child. Throughout the movie, I kept on thinking about my own relationship with my own son. The courage, resilience, and unconditional love for a mother/son relationship was heartfelt and brought me into the movie from the moment it began. I never felt like I was watching actors because of the level of professionalism and the perfect casting."
