New Film “October Baby” Hits Theatres

The new faith-based film October Baby, directed by Andrew and Jon Erwin, is about life, redemption, forgiveness and love. The movie is about a woman who survived abortion and was adopted. She tries to find her purpose and discover what happened to her family. The movie is based on a true story.

 You saw me before I was born (Psalm 139:16).

The synopsis of the film:

As the curtain rises, Hannah hesitantly steps onto the stage for her theatrical debut in college. Yet before she can utter her first lines, Hannah—unscripted—collapses in front of the stunned audience.

After countless medical tests, all signs point to one underlying factor: Hannah’s difficult birth. This revelation is nothing compared to what she then learns from her parents: She was actually adopted…after a failed abortion attempt.

Bewildered, angered, and confused, Hannah turns for support to Jason, her oldest friend. Encouraged by his adventurous spirit, Hannah 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.

In the midst of her incredible journey, Hannah finds that life can be so much more than what you have planned (www.octoberbabymovie.net).

Watch the trailer:


The film sends the powerful message that “every life is beautiful.” It has a ministry website you can visit to see testimonial videos of the actors and people involved in the project.  There are also recovery resources, ministry links and outreach opportunities.

Watch the video about Gianna Jessen, the inspiration behind the film and the woman whose story it was based on:


The film was released March 23 and is playing in select theaters.

Although this is a sensitive subject, the faith-based film isn’t just about abortion and life but also forgiveness, as the main character has to forgive her mother and family for her past.

PI readers, do you plan to see October Baby?

    Do you know when someone will post this on YouTube? I can’t exactly go to the movies because of school, and it’s less expensive, because we have a VERY bad economy where I am right now.
