Two girls, separated at birth, adopted by two different families, in two different countries, on two different continents. This explores the issue of birth, family, adoption, twins, separation, the truth about one's past. Students in upper grades could handle these issues and could answer questions such as -How does growing up in a certain place or where you're born affect you and how you see the world? What does family mean to you? How would you feel if you found out you were adopted? What would you do if you found out you had a twin? How does separation affect families/siblings? How much do you think you want to know about your past and the truth about your family even if it is hard to hear?
The two girls are adopted from Korea. They each grew up in separate locations. One sister grew up in the US and later moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. The other grew up in France and moved to London to pursue a career in the fashion industry. They take trips to visit one another. They decide to go to an adoptee conference in Korea. They search for information about their birth mother who denies having them.
There is some profanity and some vulgar humor, especially at the beginning. Use caution when showing students. Show relevant clips. This would work for a unit on identity, family, relationships, and showing cultural differences and similarities as it is filmed in the US, Europe and Korea. It is an overall upbeat film with some touching moments.
