    Why can't I view any films that was downloaded in my playlist? Do I have to buy these first?

    I kept rooting for Gil to not be afraid to go forward. Thinking about how old he would be now. Did this search make him a better husband and father and possibly grandfather? How did this change his life? Was he more grounded? Did he feel safe to share who he really was inside and love deeper with the joy of a connecting bond? Did Gil keep in contact with his found relatives? So many questions that only another documentary could answer. Thank you for sharing this intimate path of discovery Gil.
