Her adoption was never kept a secret from her while she grew up in a loving adoptive family.

Then, years later, after her father dies, Rebecca decides to try to find the family her dad had described to her.

The women soon realize that they are sisters and Rebecca is welcomed with open arms on a visit to the reservation. But when her husband, Jack, comes to see them, the differences between the two cultures rise to the surface, and Rebecca must integrate the old and the new so that her whole family can be together happily.

I sat down with a little scepticism for this movie. The description of the movie on the television guide did not sound that appealing. However, after a slow start in the first 20 or so minutes I really got into it.
The movie is about this woman who was adopted as a child, and then as a married adult with kids of her own, decides to start looking for her birth family. She finds them in a native American reservation!
As I have friends in the US who are native American and I have been told many stories about their traditions I was very impressed with how they conveyed that culture on the screen.
You may also recognise the grandmother. She was in Dr Quinn Medicine Woman as Cloud Dancing's wife.
I highly recommend this movie!
