Reviews

This short film packs a wallop. – Beth Hall, Co Author, Inside Transracial Adoption; Director, Pact

This touching account of an American mother searching out the family of her adopted son in Guatemala surfs the edges of fear, danger and deeper love for all family members, on both sides of the adoption. A true adventure in extended families, this film is worth watching even if you have no knowledge or experience of the topic. We are left with a greater understanding of the reasons behind the realities, but no greater understanding of how to make it better- other than to keep reaching out, keep trying to connect and care for our families with love and respect. – Anna Darrah, Director of Acquisitions, Spiritual Cinema Circle

beautiful. tender. open. honest. curious. vulnerable. and absolutely lovely. – Eliaichi Kimaro, Filmmaker/Activist; Director, A Lot Like You

AMAZING film. Saw it three months ago and still think about it (and the issues raised) daily. – C. King, Adoptive Parent
