A growing number of Canadian families are realizing their dreams of becoming parents through the adoption of babies from China. Over 8,000 Chinese children have been adopted by Canadians since 1989. Made in China tells the story of several remarkable children from China between the ages of five and thirteen who make three regions of Canada-British Columbia, Québec, and Newfoundland-their new home. What does it mean to live in a trans-racial adoptive family? How do these children adapt to their new environments and how do they cope with their biological identity and racial differences? These questions, amongst others, are addressed poignantly by the girls and boys featured in this evocative documentary. Made in China shows how Canadians have gone beyond national boundaries to create global families as well as build bridges to help their adopted children discover and understand their hybrid identities.
