A remarkable animated doc tracing the unusual life of filmmaker Jung Henin - one of thousands of Korean children adopted by Western families after the end of the Korean War. Jung intercuts snippets of super-8 family footage with his own sepia-toned drawings to tell a story of a boy stranded between two cultures - capturing a wry, humorous and above all, inspiring capacity of the human heart.
