We're Not Blood
Adopted at birth, filmmaker Jeff Togman doesn't know who he is - literally. But when Jeff's own children are born, it unleashes feelings of abandonment he never knew that he had, and compels him to search for his biological parents.
In We're Not Blood the personal quickly becomes political, as Jeff finds himself in the middle of a nationwide legal battle that has sealed the birth records of most adopted people, including his own.
