Who says you can't choose your family? This is a full length verite documentary about the Tom family - 11 special needs children adopted by Fairfield, California mother Susan's battle with her emotionally disturbed teenage son. With limited help from the state, Susan cares for a bustling and often chaotic house of children with conditions ranging from genetic skin disease to missing limbs. Encouraged by Susan to feel a sense of self-acceptance, most children thrive despite their disabilities. But Susan's limits are tested when her 15 year old son threatens to kill one of the siblings. And when one child unexpectedly dies, the Tom family must come to understand death at an early age.
