"Two Danish-Korean adoptees visit their Motherland for the first time and are confronted with their own identity struggles.
Karoline and Thomas are adopted. They finally come to Korea to find their birth mothers in their 30s. They spend time of unfamiliarity and the past in Korea. Adoptees gathered in the guesthouse, share their memories and incidents through the conversation. Korea is not the place to find mothers right now. Their experiences and stories are all different. Someone became subject to racism, another feels disappointed to be told by European parents that he didn´t look like a Korean. By the way, the awkward and unfamiliar feeling is the same as it was in Europe. The people in the guesthouse look special to each other ,suddenly, even their fellowship is also strange. The film comes into the audience´s hearts as if it muses over the time, sometimes putting the irritating feeling of reality forward. That feeling imbues the style and mood of this film.
