What happens when two Western couples adopt Russian orphans? How will the children cope in their new homes and will they be able to reconcile feelings for their new families with loyalty towards the kin they have left behind? This moving documentary follows Kira and Lara through their first three years in Canada. Initially, both girls are eager to leave the orphanage but they soon find that it's not so easy to leave their pasts behind. And what starts out as straightforward adoptions soon become more complicated for everyone involved.
