My Journey's End
Senator George Mitchell, the architect of the Good Friday Agreement, returned to Northern Ireland with his 14-year-old son Andrew to visit some of the 61 families whose children share Andrew's birthday. In this deeply personal film, the families talk about the effects of the Agreement and how life has changed for "the children of peace." Former President Bill Clinton adds his perspective on the significance of Senator Mitchell's work.
