Mercy Mercy – A Portrait of True Adoption

What happens when adoption turns into an industry with the aim to alleviate the western world's childlessness, forgetting all about helping the children and families in the developing countries? The film is a global story about the catastrophic consequences of a choice made with the best intention. We follow an adoption from both sides of the globe, from the biological parents' last days with their children, through the adoption process and during the first four years of the adoptive parents' new life with the children in the West.
