The Film

In the 1960s, the Sun Duck Orphanage in South Korea switched the identities of two orphans when an American family adopted one of them. In the Matter of Cha Jung Hee filmmaker Deann Borshay Liem goes on a quest to search for her “double” — a girl named Cha Jung Hee — in an attempt to resolve a case of mistaken identity and in the process explores the complexities of international transracial adoptions.
