I'm so glad to discover yet another film in which an adoptee shares about her experience! You Follow shadows Nisha Grayson as she returns to her birthplace of Goa, India, for the first time and searches for her biological family. The film was recently screened in Sacramento. Looking forward to this one making the rounds!
