For Brenda Matthews, her first memories were of growing up in a loving white foster family, before she was suddenly taken away and returned to an Aboriginal family she didn’t know. Decades later, still feeling disconnected from both halves of her life, she sets out on journey to locate the foster family with whom she had lost all contact. Along the way she uncovers long-buried secrets, government lies, and the possibility for deeper connections to family and culture.

Brenda's mission to unearth the truth about her past and discover where she truly belongs makes for a powerful and inspiring documentary, offering audiences a window into two very different worlds – and an opportunity to further understand First Nations People and our shared history and cultures.
