David Scotton was adopted at birth and raised in Louisiana by parents who had previously lost two sons. The film portrays the love between Scott and his parents, his search for where his life began, and the agony his birth mother experienced when she was 19 and chose to have him adopted.
Scott travels on a train to Indiana to meet his birth parents. They anxiously await his arrival, worried about how he’ll react to the decisions they made before he was born. They went to an abortion clinic. They didn’t tell some of their family members about him. Now, they’re meeting him for the first time.
Attendees at the screening can meet and hear from the documentary’s director, Philip Braun III, and David’s adoptive and birth mothers, Susan Scotton and Melissa Coles, respectively.
