In this documentary, identification, minority strategies and nationality is
investigated through the global community of korean adoptees.
In the search of this community, the narrator takes us through a vivid kaleidoscope
of inhabitants in a «nation» in its very beginning, a gathering of people without a
common language, culture or even a country. Only the experience of being adopted
brings them together, but the experiences, approaches and views are plenty, and
even contradicting at times.
What is the collectivity that makes ground for a nation on its own?
Can a person truly be re-programmed to another culture, what are the costs?
