Thousands of girls who were in the first wave of Chinese children to be adopted in Québec in the 1990s have reached adolescence. The filmmaker focused her lens on five of them and accompanied them throughout their emotionally charged transition to adulthood. In their quest for identity, how do these young Quebecers experience their difference? An intimate and touching journey into the world of Alice, Lea, Julia, Anne and Flavie.
