Three sisters and a brother, adopted as infants into separate families across North America, meet together for the first time in this deeply moving documentary by director Tasha Hubbard.

As the four siblings piece together their shared history, their connection deepens, bringing laughter with it, and their family begins to take shape.

Will we finally succeed, or will the project collapse under its own massive complexity?
