A moving story about the search for belonging and family lost in adoption.

Una was the first person who used the change in Latvian Law to find her sister, lost in the process of adoption. Breaking through bureaucratic jungle she suddenly discovers that she has not only one but four sisters, all adopted and scattered around the world. The search for them becomes her mission that takes her to Europe, Russia and US.
She translates her call in 32 languages and posts it across the world. The almost impossible task is helped by media, friends, courage and  persistence.
