Sometimes the greatest love story is about your very own family.

little man is the story of how a micro-preemie brought a family to its knees. When Nicholas is born 100 days early, he weighs only one pound and faces impossible odds for survival.

As he struggles for life, so struggle filmmaker Nicole Conn and political activist Gwen Baba to keep their family from disintegrating under the unrelenting stress and chaos of hospitals, emergency medical crises and a crushing blow to trust.
