A film we've covered a couple of times in the past. From the press release:

"I see a good number of independent films each year and "Ties That Bind" is one of the most gripping movies I've screened in a long time." Rick Berman, Executive Producer Star Trek TORONTO, Nov. 7, 2011 /CNW/ - From award winning Ghanaian director Leila Djansi comes the much anticipated international drama Ties That Bind will have a special screening on: November 17th , 2011 Cumberland 4 Theater in Yorkville at 7:30 pm
Ties that Bind tells the ensemble story of three women from different backgrounds bound together by a common tragedy -- the loss of a child. In a destined meeting in a small West African village, the women journey together to redemption, love, life and forgiveness as they renovate a haunted, dilapidated clinic for the villagers. Starring Kimberly Elise (Diary of a Mad Black Woman), Randall Batinkoff (X Men: First Class), 2011 AMAA Award Winner Ama Abebrese, Nollywood star Omotola Jolade Ekeinde, Ebbe Bassey and John Dumelo, the international star-studded drama was shot on location in Ghana, West Africa. Ties That Bind is written and directed by BAFTA/LA winner Leila Djansi, whose film I Sing of the Well won the Pan African Festival Choice Prize at the Pan African Film Festival earlier this year. The film follows Djansi's mission to tell social issue stories that will encourage change. Djansi was inspired to make Ties That Bind after watching a documentary on adoption in her home country of Ghana, where adoption is not a part of the culture for her fellow Africans. Djansi decided to tell a story that deals with child loss in the African culture, and the effect it had on the women and societies reaction to them. Hollywood stars Randall Batinkoff and the amazing Kimberly Elise bring international flavor and appeal to this much anticipated drama.
