This gripping observational documentary uncovers the extraordinary journey of 27 year old Judith Craig. Abandoned at birth, she bravely returns to where she was born, Haiti, to find her parents. From the poverty-stricken families who have given up a child to the foreign families looking to adopt one, these disparate worlds collide amid Judith’s quest to solve the puzzle of her past. with the sights and sounds of Haiti before the earthquake as a backdrop, these intersecting lives provide a rare and intimate insight into the conditions surrounding inter-racial and trans-national adoption. Thanks to Ayiti Images for recommended this excellent documentary!
