Cheongju, South Korea, 1977. A young struggling mother leaves her son with relatives while she looks for work. When she returns, her baby is gone—sent away for adoption. South Dakota, USA, 2005. A single father seeks his medical records for his young daughter. His journey leads him to the place of his birth, South Korea. On national TV, he meets the mother he lost almost 30 years before. Resilience is an award-winning documentary that takes a look at a rarely-told side of adoption: what happens after the reunion. As strangers, Myungja and Brent discover what it means to be mother and son. Without a common language or culture, they attempt to mend the broken bond and become a family again.
