The Synopsis for Somewhere Between (2012) 720p

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN tells the intimate stories of four teenaged girls. They live in different parts of the US, in different kinds of families and are united by one thing: all four were adopted from China because all four had birth parents who could not keep them, due to personal circumstances colliding with China's "One Child Policy". These strong young women allow us to grasp what it is like to come-of-age in today's America as trans-racial adoptees. At the same time, we see them as typical American teenagers doing what teenagers everywhere do...struggling to make sense of their lives. Through these young women, and their explorations of who they are, we ourselves pause to consider who we are - both as individuals and as a nation of immigrants. Identity, racism, and gender...these far-reaching issues are explored in the documentary. And with great honesty and courage, these four girls open their hearts to experience love, compassion, and self-acceptance.

What is it like to be a little girl, flown out of China with some senseof past home, place and life, then adopted and raised as an American ina secure home with love and good parenting? This skillfully-madedocumentary puts you in the shoes--no, the skins--of four young womenwho, in the words of one, are like bananas, yellow outside and whiteinside. They are all bright, well-educated, hard-working, and grounded,but something is still missing in their lives.

Just what should China mean to them? Is it the tiny but tantalizingpossibility of finding a birth parent, with the surprises that mightbring--a story that has been told many times? Is it the sense of aplace where they visibly fit in? Is it the need to share their feelingswith other kids like themselves? And what of the lingering feelingthat, before they were adopted, they were rejected? You will experienceall these things alongside these young women, as they travel to Europeand China, grow, and open up like flowers. Is it enough to feelChinese, or must she feel like a Dai (minority) person because shelooks like one? Where does that lead her? What does it feel like to bein the stark orphanage that she dimly recalls? And what does she feelwhen she sees a bright little girl like she was, but trapped in a boxin that orphanage because of a disability that could be treated?

I agree with Los Angeles Times reviewer Kenneth Turan, whoseprofessional review I commend to you, that only a stone would not bemoved by this film.

There are plenty of tears shed on the screen and even more by the movietheater audience,myself included.The movie does a beautiful jobportraying the lives of the Chinese adoptees and the many challengesthey face.One thing that I took away from Somewhere Between is the needthe children shared in knowing about their heritage.For some it is adesire to perhaps visit the orphanage or village they came from or forothers it may be too track down their birth parents.The movie is anabsolute delight and will appeal to a wide range of movie-goers,butwill especially touch those in the adoption community who can relatefirst hand about the heartfelt journey of adoption.

The Chinese government's 'one family/one child' policy which began in1979 had a serious unintended consequence. Because families were toldthey could only have one child, many families began abandoning theirgirls. After all, they reasoned, families NEED a boy--they don't needgirls (a similar problem has occurred in India, by the way). But, whatcan they do with all these little girls? Well, there were lots offamilies around the world who were eager to adopt many of them. Thisfilm is about five Chinese girls who were adopted by Americans andchronicles their lives and struggles. It brings up many interestingtopics, such as the desire by some to try to locate their birthparents, fitting in with American and Chinese culture and many others.All this is quite interesting--and you really found yourself feelingfor the girls. Because of this, a few times I could feel a few tearswelling up--so be sure to have some Kleenex handy.

By the way, if you do see the film, you be left wondering a few things,such as how is the girl with cerebral palsy doing today as well as howdid the one family have four kids when the government ordered that youcould only have one. Thought-provoking, that's for sure.
