"Returning home to a small town in Montana for her high school reunion, [filmmaker Kimberly] Reed hopes for reconciliation with her long-estranged adopted brother...along the way [the film] uncovers stunning revelations...and unforeseeable twists of plot and gender...Questions of sexual orientation, identity, severe trauma and family love are effortlessly explored as the subjects freely open up their lives to the camera." -- Container.
