The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
After their two-year-old daughter succumbs to cancer, a Thai couple decides to make her the youngest person to undergo the cryopreservation process, with the hope that she will have another chance at life in the future. When their story becomes national news, the family faces criticism from religious and spiritual groups. Consumed with grief, the family addresses the implications of their choice, sending their teenage son on a journey around the world to discover the scientific possibilities of cryogenic revival.
