Synopsis

Three sisters and a brother, adopted as infants into separate families, meet for the first time in this deeply moving documentary. Part of Canada’s infamous Sixties Scoop, in which 20,000 Indigenous children were removed from their families, the siblings are now middle-aged, with no shared memories. Together, they piece together their history and take the first steps toward building their family.
