At sixteen, a young woman gives up her baby for adoption. Thirty years later, the daughter, Thea, seeks her out. Full of anticipation and misgivings, mother and daughter set out to meet each other. Thea has always felt herself a misfit in the home of her fussy, middle class, adoptive parents and hopes she will have more in common with her biological mother.
