Why is it important to make this project?
This project is one of the only documentaries in which adoption is politicized and through the eyes of those who live it. Too often adopted people are portrayed as children and too often their stories are told by adoptive parents. Adoptees are silenced when being told they should be grateful that they were saved. This film will give courage to adoptees across the world to express fully and will inspire people of the LGBTQ2S + community to become better allies.
