In profiling Chinese adoptees in contemporary America, Linda Goldstein Knowlton's deeply moving documentary illustrates that even the most specific of experiences can be universally relatable. Of the roughly 80,000 girls that have been adopted from China since 1991, we follow four teenagers; giggly, typical American teens who reveal a heartbreaking sense of self-awareness.They meet and bond with other adoptees, journey back to China in search of their birth parents, reach out to the orphaned girls left behind, and attempt to make sense of their own complex heritage. Issues of identity, race, and gender are brought to life through these articulate subjects, who approach life with honesty and open hearts.

Due to its sensitive subject, this film is not recommended for ages 14 or under.
