Hannah collapses on stage the night of her theatrical debut in college. Countless medical tests later everything points to the underlying factor which was her difficult birth. This not a huge revelation when compared to the one that she was actually adopted … after a failed abortion attempt. Hannah turns for support to Jason and joins his group of friends on a Spring Break road trip, embarking on a journey to discover her hidden past and find hope for her unknown future. What she finds in the midst of her incredible journey is that life can be so much more than what you have planned.
October Baby was very emotional for me to watch and my heart went out to Hannah. Imagine finding out that you are result of a failed abortion attempt. Hannah was so devastated and now suddenly understood why she always felt like she was unwanted. As Hannah begins her road trip there are moments when she seems a bit immature for a college student but then there are moments when Jason really steps up as a friend. This is really a gut wrenching movie but it is also really good.
