This film focuses on the historic and psychic trauma caused by governemntal policies of the large-scale removal or "scooping" of Indigenous children from their homes, communities and families of birth through the 1960s and their subsequent adoption into predominantly non-Indigenous, middle-class families across the United States and Canada, leaving many adoptees with a lost sense of cultural identity. Also discussed are Canada's residential schools that were compulsory boarding schools run by the government and religious authorities during the 19th and 20th Centuries with the aim of forcibly assimilating indigenous youth
