DIRECTOR: NICOLE OPPER

Teenage runner Avery lives in Brooklyn with her Jewish mothers and two adopted brothers. Avery’s desire and curiosity to learn more about herself and her African-American roots are growing – she decides to get in touch with her biological mother. But her decision is challenging to her caring family and disappointments send Avery into a downward spiral. Using an objective approach, the filmmaker conveys a human depiction of an intelligent, enquiring girl and her strong family ties. Inspiration and warmth are interwoven with alienation into a thoughtfully radiant documentary. A mature portrait of identity.
