In this powerful tale about the rise of Korea’s global adoption program by Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Dean Borshay Liem, four adult adoptees return to their country of birth and reconnect with their roots, mapping the geographies of kinship that bind them to a homeland they never knew. Along the way there are discoveries and dead ends, as well as mysteries that will never be unraveled. The interconnectedness of these stories challenge us to reflect on universal questions of identity, assimilation, kinship, and belonging. — Micki Davis
