Somewhere Between

Somewhere Between tells the intimate stories of four teenaged girls, all from different parts of the U.S., all from different kinds of families. However, they are all united by one common thread: they were adopted from China because all had birth parents who could not keep them, due to personal circumstances colliding with China's "One Child Policy". These strong young women communicate what it is like to come-of-age in today's America as trans-racial adoptees. At the same time, we see them as typical American teenagers, doing what teenagers everywhere do, struggle to make sense of their lives. Through these young women and their explorations of who they are, we, ourselves, pause to consider who we are - both as individuals and as a nation of immigrants. Somewhere Between thoughtfully explores issues related to identity, racism, gender and self-acceptance.
