Winner of the 2010 Sterling Award for best U.S. feature at Silverdocs, this touching and thought-provoking film documents the adoption of young Fang Sui Yong from Guangzhou, China by Jeff and Donna Sadowsky of Long Island, New York. The first meeting between the eight-year-old and her new mother, captured on camera, is painful to watch – the longing of the mother and the confusion of the child obvious in their exchange. But as time goes on, Sui Yong becomes more comfortable in her new reality, and a family relationship is forged.
