Children of the State

.

In Russia there are nearly 500’000 orphans waiting to find adoptive parents. Adoption isn’t a popular option in Russia, so these children pin their hopes for a better future on the possibility of international adoption. That was until Christmas Day 2012, when President Putin signed a bill banning American and some European citizens from adopting Russian children.
Katrina Morris from US is one of the prospective parents who was barred by this bill from completing the adoption process for Natasha, a five-year old girl with Down syndrome. Natasha is unlikely to ever be adopted, but Katrina goes on struggling for her.

  • Synopsis

    Each year all over the world the number of families who can’t have their biological children is growing. While in Russia there are nearly 500 000 orphans who wait for their chance to find adoptive parents. In Russia the adoption isn’t so popular. The only chance these children had was international adoption.

    But December 25, 2012 President Putin has signed Dima Yakovlev’s Bill, banning American and some European citizens from adopting Russian children. Katrina Morris from US was one of those, who couldn’t accomplish the adoption process of Natasha, a five-year old girl with Down syndrome. Among other thousands of Russian orphans Natasha is unlikely to ever be adopted, but Katrina goes on struggling for her.

    Russian journalists and social activists Alexander and Julia Kolesnichenko are trying to help her. Will they be able to get Natasha out, struggling face-to-face with the billion-dollars Russian orphanage system and being involved into international political games?
