Curtis and Ashok Kaltenbaugh were born in Manitoba and are of First Nations ancestry. After the 1980 death of their younger brother, at the ages of 7 and 4 respectively, they were removed from the custody of their birth mother and placed for adoption with a middle-class white family living in Pennsylvania.
The film chronicles their search for identity and the meeting of their adoptive and birth families.
Jen's pick: This NFB production is a dramatic story of the reconciliation between biological and adoptive families. It's a journey of a cross-cultural adoptee who struggles to find balance between his families different ethnicities and traditions.
