In 1966, Deann Borshay Liem was adopted by an American family and sent from Korea to her new home in California. There the memory of her birth family was nearly obliterated, until recurring dreams led her to investigate her own past, and she discovered that her Korean mother was very much alive. Bravely uniting her biological and adoptive families, Borshay Liem embarks on a heartfelt journey in this acclaimed movie. First Person Plural is a poignant essay on cultural identity, race, gender, and family. It explores the topic of transnational adoption as well as the impact of globalization on families.
