Five adoptees from Brazil, Sri Lanka, Rwanda, Australia and South Korea share their common experiences of being separated from their birth families and communities and raised abroad.

Based on experiences not dissimilar to her own, Amandine Gay (director of Speak Up/Ouvrir La Voix) draws an intimate and political portrait of transnational adoption.
