Based on Andrew Solomon’s award-winning, critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling non-fiction book, Far From the Tree profiles families in which parents and their children have strikingly different identities. By following these parents and their extraordinary children — from those with dwarfism or Down syndrome, to child prodigies, to transgender kids — Rachel Dretzin’s delicate and moving film challenges preconceived notions of identity and difference, exploring the ways in which diversity unites us and celebrating the enriching power of love and understanding.
