"Resilience" is a documentary film that takes a unique look at international adoption from the perspective of a Korean birth mother and her American-raised son. The film follows the remarkable journey of Myung-ja as she reconnects with her son after 30 years apart. From their initial reunion on Korean television to subsequent meetings and departures, they attempt to build a relationship amidst family betrayal and the legacy of adoption. But with so many obstacles – language, culture, distance, and unspoken loss – can two strangers find a way to become mother and son?
75 min | Subtitled in Korean and English
