Through first person accounts, Gold Star Children examines the consequences of war from a different perspective - through the eyes of the children, America’s children who have lost a parent to war. The story is narrated by a nine-year-old girl whose father was killed in Iraq and a 40-year-old woman whose father was killed in Vietnam. The one hour documentary tells a cross-generational story of how the gold star children of Vietnam are mentoring the gold star children from the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The film focuses on the experience of 9 year old Cierra Becker, whose military father was killed in Iraq in 2007. Cierra is introduced to Jennifer Denard through a military family organization). Jennifer lost her father in Vietnam when she was two years old. As their relationship grows, so does their ability to cope with their shared loss, painful memories and finally their ability to move on with their lives while still remembering the sacrifice their fathers made for this country. GOLD STAR CHILDREN opens a window, for the first time, to a unique part of American history – one that is happening now, and frequently overlooked, or completely forgotten. This special project has been the labor of love of Mitty Griffis Mirrir, who became a gold star child during the Vietnam war. Gold Star Children is also a not-for-profit endeavor. The film is directed and produced by Griffis- Mirrer, produced by Emmy-Award winning producer Richard Harris with post production completed by Goldcrest Films.
