For most of us, it's not difficult to decipher where we come from and who we are. Looking at parents, siblings and relatives, one can determine which traits came from which side of family, and determine where we fit in not only at home, but in the community at large. However, the award-winning documentary "Somewhere Between" takes a look at a group of young women whose lives have taken root in the United States, but whose family tree reaches far overseas.

For most of us, it's not difficult to decipher where we come from and who we are. Looking at parents, siblings and relatives, one can determine which traits came from which side of family, and determine where we fit in not only at home, but in the community at large. However, the award-winning documentary "Somewhere Between" takes a look at a group of young women whose lives have taken root in the United States, but whose family tree reaches far overseas.

Profiling Chinese adoptees in contemporary America, "Somewhere Between" finds director Linda Goldstein Knowlton ("The World According to Sesame Street"; producer of "Whale Rider" and "The Shipping News") focusing on teenagers Haley, Jenna, Ann and Fang. They are four of the approximately 80,000 girls who have been adopted in th U.S. from China since 1989 in the wake of that nation's One Child Policy, and the film takes a look at their experiences in their new home, and follows them as they visit China to see where they came from. The exclusive trailer below offers a compelling snapshot of what to expect from "Somewhere Between," with the doc playing a handful of festivals in the past year and picking up an Audience Award at Hot Docs in 2011.

"Somewhere Between" opens in limited release on August 24th. Take a look at the trailer and poster below.
