With all the media hype today about celebrity and international adoptions, Stanton describes from an adoptee's point-of-view the prospect of meeting his birth mother and muses what it all means regarding identity. Playing 12 characters, Stanton explores every avenue that could possibly define him as a man ultimately discovering the horrific truth of his birth, an instinctive love for his birth mother and a grateful dedication to his adoptive family.
