After adopting a Chinese baby girl, filmmaker Linda Goldstein Knowlton embarks on a deeply personal project to understand the experience of four of the tens of thousands of girls who ended up at Chinese orphanages due to China’s One Child Policy and were subsequently adopted by non-Chinese families in the US. Shot over three years, this engaging documentary follows the girls’ coming of age as teenagers, when they begin to question their assimilated American upbringing, become curious about their origins and reflect upon their complex identities.
