The Return

Malene Choi Jensen (Denmark, South Korea)

Two Danish-Korean adoptees return for the first time to the country where they were born. Intrigued by the spirit of their motherland and confronted with the personal stories of the fellow adoptees they meet in Seoul, Karoline and Thomas are hurled into an emotionally disorienting journey that forces them both to question their own destiny and identity.
