Documentary Review: 21 Below

I recently had the opportunity to review a documentary called 21 Below. The documentary focuses on a family of three daughters, Sharon, Karin and Laurie. Sharon has married and returned home when she learned that Karin's 14-month-old daughter was dying from Tay-Sachs disease.

Upon returning home, Sharon finds herself acting as a mediator between her mother, Peggy and Karin. Peggy is very disappointed in Karin's lifestyle, especially the choice of her new boyfriend, Courtney. She feels that Courtney is a bad role model for Karin's children, due to his work ethic and drug-dealing activities.

In conclusion, I found this documentary to be an intriguing look at the complex challenges of the contemporary American family.
