Synopsis

Priyangika Samathie was born in Sri Lanka and adopted by a family in Norway when she was seven weeks old. The determination to search for her birth family turns a journey of reconciliation with her roots into a detective's quest. Priyangika wants to find out the truth, even if it is painful. Director Emily Beck accompanies Priyangika's investigation with sensitivity and empathy. The courage to confront the great taboos of adoption becomes an outcry against the abuse of power in Western countries.
