About the film: In a tale about the rise of Korea’s global adoption program, four adult adoptees who were raised in foreign families return to their country of birth, mapping the geographies of kinship that bind them to a homeland they never knew. Along the way they question the policies and practices that led South Korea to become the world’s largest “sending country”—with 200,000 children adopted out to North America, Europe, and Australia. Emboldened by w’hat they have experienced and learned, they become advocates for birth family and adoptee rights, support for single mothers, and historical reckoning.
