Contemporary artist Vanessa Beecroft's passionate attempt to adopt Sudanese twins Madit and Mongor Akot is the focus of this documentary. As Beecroft works tirelessly to fulfill her dream of adoption, she places her marriage and her career at risk. Known for pushing boundaries through her art, Beecroft wants to be the first foreigner to legally take South Sudanese children out of the country, an action certain to have far-reaching implications.
