Coming this fall. Resilience. A film by Tammy Chu.


Myung-ja Noh had no choice in giving up her baby for adoption. Her relatives took her baby to a hospital, which then contacted an adoption agency that came and took the baby away.

At the time, they believed adoption was the best option since she was young and poor.

Devastated, she searched for her son for years but was unable to find him.

She says she spent years being lost, and was never able to recover from losing her son. “If given the choice, I would never give up my child. I want to tell mothers not to give up their children for adoption and instead raise them, no matter how difficult it is… Losing my child is something I will not get over for as long as I live.”
