Deuxième chance

Would you like to have the chance to thank a stranger who made a difference in your life? Are you alive thanks to an unknown Good Samaritan who helped you when you needed it most? Do you have unfinished business that’s weighing you down? Would you love to say “Thank you” or “I’m sorry” to someone out there? The Gift is a documentary series that gives people with extraordinary but unfinished stories a chance to find closure by tracking down that special person from the past who has never been forgotten but seems impossible to find. When two people who have lost each other finally reconnect, viewers share in the experience — the confessions, reunions, confrontations, gratitude, apologies and forgiveness.
