Documentary about transracial adoption

I just heard about this from a friend (thanks Paul!) and the trailer had me tearing up. It looks awesome. Please check it out.

OFF AND RUNNING
A film by Nicole Opper

Siblings_2003
Synopsis:


With white Jewish lesbians for parents and two adopted brothers—one
mixed-race and one Korean—Brooklyn teen Avery grew up in a unique and
loving household. But when her curiosity about her African-American
roots grows, she decides to contact her birth mother. This choice
propels Avery into her own complicated exploration of race, identity,
and family that threatens to distance her from the parents she’s
always known. She begins staying away from home, starts skipping
school, and risks losing her shot at the college track career she had
always dreamed of. But when Avery decides to pick up the pieces of her
life and make sense of her identity, the results are inspiring. OFF
AND RUNNING follows Avery to the brink of adulthood, exploring the
strength of family bonds and the lengths people must go to become
themselves.
