Adapted from a true story, Martian Child deals with the loss of family, love and finding ourselves in this universe. Who are we? Where do we belong. Excellent movie showing the struggles of adjustment for an abandoned child who finds comfort in being a person from another plant.

We have recently completed our classes and to be honest the movie was dead on in the events that happened. These kids and there are thousands across the US, have been abandoned, mistreated, etc and each and every one of them feels it's
