First Person Plural

Deann Borshay was among thousands of supposed South Korean orphans sent to the U.S. in the 1960’s to be adopted and raised by American families. First Person Plural is a personal documentary that chronicles her struggle to solve a case of mistaken identity and unravel the mysteries surrounding her adoption. Combining archival footage of Korea, 8mm home movies, and powerful footage of Borshay and two loving families, this is a story of the struggle to integrate love and loyalty, culture and disparity. It is a universal story of living with paradox, and navigating the tricky terrain of family.
