What an interesting story and very relevant to today, when finding out about your ancestors - whether current of distant - is more accessible than ever. Having read the filmmaker's statement, I realize there is much more to this story than the film itself reveals. In some ways it feels that she didn't quite take it far enough to tell more of the story. But regardless, this is well scripted, acted, shot and edited. I see this as something that would definitely appeal to a niche audience but also to a general audience. It provokes the question about searching for your biological parent, without damaging the relationship with the parent/s that raised you. I recommend this for a KIDS FIRST! Film Festival, give it 4 out of 5 stars and suggest the audience as 12 to 18, plus adults.
