In Safe Hands
September 29, 2019
Friction between a birth mother, social workers, foster caregivers, and a prospective parent fuel the drama in this story of an adorable babe's first three months in France's adoption system.
From director Jeanne Henry (Number One Fan, FCN 2014), comes this riveting drama about a newborn named Théo who becomes a ward of the state. He ends up in limbo between social workers, the foster system, and an adoptive mother, swinging from intense determination to uncertainty, and, ultimately, joy: all par for the course while seeking the proper environment for a baby's life to begin.
