Who Do We Have Here?
Currently in production, "Who Do We Have Here?" is about the surgeon who rebuilt Producer and Director Jennifer Wallace's face, his impact on plastic surgery as we know it today, and her journey to overcome the stigmas of facial difference and find belonging.
Synopsis: Drawing inspiration from the surgeon who rebuilt her face and his philosophy that “cutting the body can heal the mind”, Jennifer embarks on a journey to find her scattered tribe, eager to connect with his former patients who bear the same physical and emotional scars of feeling set apart since birth. Along the way, she discovers that regardless of one's condition, the human desire for belonging is universal.
Producer and Director: Jennifer Wallace

Mexico City '85 (Working title)
When one of history's most devastating earthquakes tore apart Mexico City in 1985, a young mom was inspired to help, risking everything. She left her 4-month old and10-year old daughters and husband at home to field the United States' first international disaster response team, laying the foundation for FEMA and Urban Search and Rescue protocol now recognized world-wide. She and her team had 35-confirmed live finds in the rubble---people who might not have survived had it not been for the highly trained partnership of woman and woman's best friend. Producer and Director, Jennifer Wallace.
