Magnificent Burden

Nelson, Rob
Taylor Stein was a jet-setting party girl who became one of the most popular figures in the ‘90s New York social scene. Taylor could get anything — and anyone — she wanted. All that changes when she discovers, in the process of adopting her son Ren, that his birth is part of an international baby trafficking ring. To stop the ring and win legal custody, Taylor goes undercover for the FBI. But her happy ending is turned upside down when 9 months after Ren’s birth, Taylor discovers he has a deadly disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), the number one genetic killer of kids under two. Determined to save Ren, Taylor vows to use whatever influence and connections she has to put SMA in the public spotlight, and to help push for a cure for the children and families struggling with this deadly disease. Nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the Woodstock Film Festival. Official Selection at DOC NYC.
