This NFB film tells the story of three sisters and a brother, adopted as infants into separate families across North America. Removed from their young Dene mother’s care as part of Canada’s infamous Sixties Scoop, Betty Ann, Esther, Rosalie and Ben were four of the 20,000 Indigenous children taken from their families between 1955 and 1985, to be either adopted into white families or to live in foster care. They meet together for the first time in this deeply moving documentary by director Tasha Hubbard.
