  • Profiles Chinese adoptees in contemporary America, illustrating that even the most specific of experiences can be universally relatable. Of the roughly 80,000 girls who have been adopted since 1989, the film follows four teenagers, Haley, Jenna, Ann, and Fang. They meet and bond with other adoptees, some journey back to China to reconnect with the culture, and some reach out to the orphaned girls left behind. In their own ways, all attempt to make sense of their complex identities.
