Donor Unknown

If you're father was a sperm donor, you'll be reminded of him every time you masturbate.

Instead of playing with themselves, however, the offspring in this documentary are trying to locate their donor dad.

In the 1980s, Jeffrey Harrison spent a good deal of time making deposits at a cryobank under the name: Donor 150.

Twenty years later, JoEllen Marsh, one of the many children conceived from Jeffrey's genes, connects with a half-sister over the Internet.

The peculiarity of the reunion attracts the New York Times and eventually more siblings and the donor's identity are uncovered.

But are his progenies ready to visit the beach where their dad lives in an RV?

A fascinating true story about the past catching up with you, Donor Unknown's paternal pathos blends well with the genetic similarities prevalent throughout Jeff's brood.

Either way, the biggest opponent of donating to sperm banks is still Kleenex.
