The story of EDITH+EDDIE represents millions of American families who have experienced elder care disputes and guardianship cases. These cases are life altering, emotionally and financially depleting, and dealt with in isolation.

The filmmaking team is committed using the film to spread awareness and influence policy around elder justice and legal guardianship abuse.

The filmmakers' efforts are supported by an AFI DOCS Impact Grant, which includes an in-depth training in the areas of advocacy, grassroots communications and engagement.
