We're Not Blood
  • Jeffrey Togman
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 didn't even know 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. Complicating matters, Jeff feels that even asking his mom about his biological parents would be an act of betrayal. As his case grows ever more complex, Jeff realizes that his search is about much more than finding his biological parents, even as he closes in on the woman who might be his mother.
