Angela wants her friend Stephen to help her write a book. She has not seen her family in twenty five years and wants everyone to understand why. Stephen is adopted and recently met his biological mother for the first time – it was not what he was expecting and he now feels his adoption may have impacted on him as an individual far more than he previously thought. How much of where we came from determines who we are later in life? Is blood really thicker than water? As Stephen and Angela begin explore the past events of both their lives, what is truth and what is fiction?
