Editors Review: 
It would be impossible to fully understand the life and emotions of a child going through the foster care system, but this short narrative film portrays that saga in a poetic light, with brushes of fear, anger, sadness, and a tiny bit of hope. In only 13 minutes, ReMoved powerfully captures the emotional experience of a child in foster care. The idea of the film to serve in bringing awareness, encourage, and be useful in foster parent training, and raising up foster parents. the story this short film really amazing and it was beautifully filmed very realistic, very touching also, His idea powerful and confronting short film (of just under 13 minutes) shows a deeply moving insight into foster care through the eyes of a child.
