About One Small Visit

Runtime: 30 minutes

One Small Visit is the incredible true story of the Abrahams, an immigrant Indian
family who finds themselves in Neil Armstrong’s Midwest hometown during a road
trip. After learning Armstrong’s parents still live there, they excitedly set out to catch a
glimpse of the childhood home of the now-famous astronaut. In the wake of the ’69
moon landing and the civil rights movement, the Abrahams are greeted by the locals
with stares, whispers, and unknowing racist remarks, a true sign of the times. Dad is
on edge as well. His experience in this part of the country left a devastating mark on
him, and now he’s suspicious and tense just being there. Despite it all, the Abrahams
take a giant leap of faith and find themselves not only on the doorstep of the
Armstrong home but on the threshold of an experience they will never forget.
