Unadopted

After 20 years in foster care, Noel Anaya claimed his independence in court at age 21. UNADOPTED follows Noel on his quest for answers about his family and foster care experience, interweaving his own personal journey with the stories of two other teens in the system. The film examines long-term foster care from the perspective of those intimately familiar with its challenges and failings, and includes open discussions about their feelings on adoption, their relationships with their birth parents and siblings, and issues of identity and permanency.
