Shared Origins is a short documentary film about an adoptive family’s journey to reconnect with Ethiopia and the relationships that have evolved in the process.

Lory and Sonya have been partners for over 20 years. They adopted Zoe as infant and Tsehaye as a toddler, both from Ethiopia. Helen lives in Addis Ababa with her aunt and uncle. Her parents passed away from HIV/AIDS when she was young. When Zoe and Helen became pen pals they had no idea how much their relationship would deepen.
