Documentary tells story of Stamford family divided by COVID
By David Fierro
STAMFORD —When Stamford teacher Luciana Lira took in the newborn brother of one of her students to protect him from COVID-19, it touched hearts and made headlines around the world.
The story is now featured in an episode of “Frontline” called “Love, Life & the Virus.”
As part of its Welcoming Week, the Stamford-based nonprofit Building One Community, which played a role in the journey of baby Neysel’s family, will offer a free virtual screening on Thursday of the documentary in partnership with “PBS Frontline” and Stamford Health Medical Group.
