More than 80,000 unwanted girls from China, mostly infants, have been adopted by American families since the Chinese government instituted its “one child” policy in 1979. This personal yet undeniably universal documentary by Linda Goldstein Knowlton (herself an adoptive mother) profiles four China-born teenagers from different parts of the US, and learns how Fang, Jenna, Ann, and Haley individually reconcile their feelings on the issues of identity and belonging. It finally boils down to people who care about other people, and it’s enough to restore your faith in humanity. Note: One of the film’s subjects, Berkeley resident Fang “Jenni” Lee, appears with filmmaker Knowlton at select opening-weekend shows. (88 min.)
