Product Description:

This brave piece of documentary filmmaking follows director Joanna Rudnick as she faces a life-changing decision at the age of 31. Rudnick has to decide whether to have an operation to remove her ovaries and breasts in order to reduce her chances of dying from cancer. To aid her in the decision Rudnick speaks with a number of women who have found themselves in a similar predicament, and offers some fascinating insight into the world of predictive genetic testing. Ultimately Rudnick has to decide whether to let go of her dreams of having children or take a risk and possibly not survive, making IN THE FAMILY a thoughtful and deeply personal experience.

Description by First Run Features Home Video:

At 31, filmmaker Joanna Rudnick faces an impossible decision: remove her breasts and ovaries or risk overwhelming odds of developing cancer. Armed with a genetic test result that leaves her "a ticking time bomb," she balances dreams of having her own children with the unnerving reality that she is risking her life by holding on to her fertility.
IN THE FAMILY follows Joanna as she connects with other women trying to navigate their way around the wrenching decisions associated with predictive genetic testing. Turning the camera on herself, Joanna bares her conflicting emotions about preventative surgery and the potential consequences, just as she and her partner contemplate a family together.
Intensely personal and timely, IN THE FAMILY is a groundbreaking investigation into the question: How much do you sacrifice to survive'
