        Traces the unconventional upbringing of filmmaker Jung Henin, one of thousands of Korean children adopted by Western families after the end of the Korean War. It is the story of a boy stranded between two cultures. Sepia-toned animated vignettes – some humorous and some poetic – track Jung from the day he first meets his new blond siblings, through elementary school, and into his teenage years, when his emerging sense of identity begins to create fissures at home and ignite the latent biases of his adoptive parents. The filmmaker tells his story using his own animation intercut with snippets of super-8 family footage and archival film. The result is a memoir like no other: clear-eyed and unflinching, humorous and wry, and above all, inspiring in the capacity of the human heart.

            Beyond the country that overcame slavery to become the first Black Republic, beyond the country that has survived numerous natural disasters and even humanitarian aid, lies Ayiti Toma, the 'country that is ours'. The documentary that bears this name aspires to present this lesser known, more inclusive Ayiti as it is retold and illuminated by the Ayitians themselves, be they intellectuals, politicians, practitioners of voodoo or young survivors from a hard-hit borough of Port-au-Prince. With the additional input of anthropologists, historians and aid workers (including Sean Penn), this documentary illustrates that the extraordinary culture of this 'magical people' must be taken into account if Ayiti Toma, the land of the living is to come into being.
