Awards: Audience Choice Award (NFF)

Not many kids can claim that one of their parents is a Grammy-winning songwriter for the likes of Cher, Ricky Martin and Heart, among dozens of others, or that their godfather is rocker Jon Bon Jovi. TWO follows the story of Hall of Fame songwriter Desmond Child ("Living la Vida Loca", "Waking Up in Vegas"), and his partner of 24 years, Curtis Shaw Child, who, together with longtime best friend Angela Whittaker are the parents of 10-year-old twin boys, Roman and Nyro.

This hugely engaging film traces a 12-year period in which Desmond and Curtis meet Angela, the woman who was to become their closest friend and surrogate, and raise the twin sons who are the offspring of that happy union. What started as a video diary tracing Angela’s journey to bear a child for her two gay best friends evolves into a moving reflection on the ways in which a modern family may differ from the traditional model, but remain rooted in the timeless values.

Winner: Audience Award, Best Documentary Film, Nashville Film Festival
