Found A documentary by director Amanda Lipitz, follows three adopted teenage girls as they search for information about their birth parents. The three girls, Chloe, Sadie and Lily, find each other after taking a DNA test that reveals them to be blood-related cousins, and they continue to look into their ancestry with the help of Liu, a China-based investigator who specializes in connecting people to their heritage. The documentary addresses the harm caused by China’s One-Child policy, a 1979 family-planning policy intended to reduce the growth rate of the Chinese population.
