US PREMIERE After losing their daughters (each named “Rain”) in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, two families set out to “replace” their children and rebuild their lives. Impressive in its scope and access to daily domestic life in China, award-winning documentarian Jian Fan’s film follows the families over ten years, giving a fly-on-the-wall view into the anguish, cruelty, humor, and tenderness as they evolve through their grief towards acceptance and love. Executive produced by Jean Tsien. – Karen McMullen
