A year after the sudden death of her mother, Taylor, a 14-year-old adoptee has secretly grown obsessed with finding her birth family in Korea. The loss has also taken a severe toll on her relationship with her father, Bill, a high school teacher who medicates his grief with alcohol.


As summer begins, a Korean family unexpectedly immigrates to her all-white neighborhood and Taylor befriends a new maternal figure, Areum who agrees to help locate her birth family. As the two grow closer, Areum’s own struggle with the loss of her old life and home helps Taylor connect with her Korean roots and grieve her mother’s death. But as they delve deeper into her birth family’s whereabouts, they discover an unforeseen truth that threatens to break her already fragile bond with her father.
