Estranged Family Members - /Principal / Male or Female / All Ethnicities / 18 - 65

Have you been estranged from a parent(s), sibling, family member, or best friend for any reason? And would you be interested in opening your arms to reach out to that person to reconcile, solve, repair, and confront the issue with the possibility of having that relationship again in your life? We would love to interview and document your story as your attempt and hopefully reconcile with that person.

We’re open to any story with the context of being estranged from someone you were close to. It could be a disagreement over marrying a person your family doesn’t approve of and you want to repair this relationship after years. Or you come out to your parents and they didn’t approve OR your child came out to you and you didn’t approve and your relationship frayed, but you’re now willing to accept your child is gay and open your arms because you love your child unconditionally.
