"Resilience follows the story of one mother?s loss and search for redemption from a child she separated from decades before.

As a new mother in 1970s Korea, Myung-ja Noh was obligated to her husband?s family and searching to make ends meet. One day when she was out, her in-laws took her only son, Sung-wook, away from her without her consent, with the intent that he would have a better life without her.

Resilience follows Sung-wook, known as Brent, in his search for his birthmother and, eventually, his long awaited reunion with Myung-ja as they willfully become family. Throughout, the film captures key moments of cultural differences mixed with surprisingly typical parent-child behaviors."


A panel discussion on Korean adoption, birth search, and reunion will take place following the film at 4:45pm in the Meyer Auditorium.
