This fascinating and remarkable animated autobiography traces the unconventional upbringing of filmmaker Jung Henin, one of thousands of Korean children adopted into Europe after the end of the Korean War. A series of gorgeously animated vignettes track Jung from the day of his adoption through his teenage years, when his emerging sense of identity begins to create fissures at home and ignites the latent biases of his adoptive parents. Throughout this all, Jung finds release in drawing, and this work becomes the ultimate expression of what started as the doodles of a boy stranded between two cultures.
