A search for the truth, good or bad.
15 February 1999 | by franiofSee all my reviews

A search for a woman's natural mother, turns up not one mother, but three. The search was started to secure medical history for her children, but turned out to be a release of her deep-set emotions. I liked this movie for many reasons. It was based on actual events and shows the value of not giving up, although I felt her search for the truth was "a bit too easy".
