This is a trailer for my documentary in progress paralleling my search for identity as a child of mixed heritage with that of my grandfather after he left North Korea before the war and moved to the United States, sixty years ago. Filmed in both the United States and South Korea, it is a story of family, cultural history and finding a place to belong regardless of where you were born.
