This documentary chronicles the experiences of mothers who represent three distinct aspects of the story: A Chinese mother who abandoned her baby; a white, middle-class North American mother who adopted a Chinese girl; and a Canadian mother preparing to pick up her baby from China. Each one of these mothers shares her experiences and struggles reconciling the powerful emotions and ideas that both abandonment and adoption, from an alien culture, entail.
Their stories come together into a seamless exploration of the universal themes of mother and child, longing and belonging, culture and identity. These women are bound together, not necessarily by blood, but by their inevitable and perhaps endless search for one another.
