In 1966, Deann Borshay Liem (In the Matter of Cha Jung Hee, POV 2010) was adopted by an American family and sent from Korea to her new home in California. There the memory of her birth family was nearly obliterated, until recurring dreams led her to investigate her own past, and she discovered that her Korean mother was very much alive.
