The Search for Tristan’s Mum

This groundbreaking documentary is about Tristan Dowse, an Indonesian child, illegally adopted and then abandoned two years later by his adoptive parents in an Indonesian orphanage.

Investigative journalist Ann McElhinney travels to Indonesia to try and find his natural mother, who is unaware of the international storm growing around Tristan. McElhinney’s investigation exposes the baby selling network and also raises disturbing questions about international adoption.

This emotional documentary of high and low points gives an insight into how some international adoptions are organised and how the role of money and corruption plays a big part in this process.
