Found in Korea (US, 74")


Abandoned and left in the streets as a newborn baby, Korean adoptee (Nam) returns home to find the world she lost as a baby. In search of her birth parents, she attempts to retrace her journey from birth to being adopted by a family in America, but old records and 35 years of economic growth have transformed the Korea of her infancy into a country where information held on paper is a thing of the past, leaving her with no trail to follow. Desperate for more information, Nam travels south to the island where she was born in hopes of discovering unknown files and people who might remember her story. Along the way she interviews social workers, Koreans and other adoptees, and discovers why over 200,000 children have been sent away from Korea for international adoption.
