Summary
Documentary filmmaker, Steve Thomas, revisits his twin sister Val's experience as a relinquishing mother, caught between the permissive image of England in 1964, and the harsh reality of attitudes towards unmarried mothers. Pregnant at 15 and sent to an institution, arrangements were made for the subsequent adoption of her baby. Val was to spend the next 25 years, most of them in New Zealand where she emigrated, not knowing the whereabouts of her child. Eventually, however, her daughter's curiosity reawakens the past
