5000 Miles is a 2006 American documentary film by filmmaker Michael Rozumalski that tells the story of a young couple and their journey of adopting a child from Poland.
This independent film was produced for an estimated $120,000 and was primarily filmed by Rozumalski. The story begins in Wisconsin and takes the audience to Nowa Sól, Poland (5,000 miles or 8,000 kilometers away). The film spans almost two years (20 months) in the life of Rozumalski and his wife, Amy. The film was released in 2006 by Splice Films.
Original titles for the film included, Adopting Ally and 5000 Miles Away.
The film tells the story of a young couple form the mid-west who decided to adopt a child all the way in Poland. The film shows how the Polish girl became part of their family. It is a 75-minute film showing the emotionally draining experience of the couple traveling across the world, just to create the family that they longed for. The film follows the hopeful young couple from the beginning of their adoption progress and the film concludes once their whole family (including the new daughter) arrives home. This whole process took the couple a period of 20 months. It is a very emotional and dramatic film.
