Fucking Adopted

A documentary about two brown girls who have been asked “Where are you really from?” one too many times.

Are you going to find your “real” parents? Therese and Nora have no plans on doing that. They are both adopted from India and came to Norway as babies but have never talked about adoption together. Nora invites Therese inside a box. Here they paint their skin white, teach each other to fight, and try to figure out why it’s so difficult to say out loud “I am adopted!”
