Somewhere Between

Linda Goldstein Knowlton, Patricia Verducci

My daughter's name is Ruby. She is four. When my husband and I adopted her from China we had no idea what lay ahead. In an instant, we became a family. I began to think about Ruby's future and started to wonder how her coming of age would differ from mine. Somewhere Between tells intimate stories of what it is like to come-of-age as a trans-racial adoptee in 2008, as examined through the point of view of some of the 77,562 adopted girls from China. Through these girls we will explore identity, racism, and gender. Through the voices of these young women, we will see not just their lives, but our own, reflected back to us - whether we are adoptive families or not. Somewhere Between will start a dialogue about what we see, who we are, and the changing face of the American family. This film is about 77,562 girls growing up in America. Right now.
