What do you do when your life is suddenly turned upside down? In the documentary From That Moment On, Everything Changed, eight children (7 - 15 years old) bring you back to the moment their parents told them that they were getting divorced. In a white studio, the children add color to all the details they still can remember. For example the pastry on the table, the way their parents moved, the flashes of thoughts and feelings they had. They all had a feeling that something was about to happen, yet they didn’t see it coming. Joelle (11 years old) who thought her parents were taking her to a theme park instead. “I was shocked”, said Imre (12 years old). “I just couldn't move anymore”, said Milo (11 years old).

In the film the children take you on their rollercoaster of experiences after the four words “we are getting divorced”. How do you deal with all these questions, thoughts and emotions that are running through your head at that moment? And how did these children managed to deal with this?
