Prue Leith has been a household name since the 70s. And for many she is the quintessential English woman. Yet, 45 years ago she made, what was for the time, the radical decision to adopt a Cambodian baby, Li-Da. Prue gave Li-Da an idyllic English upbringing at her Cotswolds home and, by her own admission, rarely questioned whether she could have helped Li-Da connect more with her Cambodian roots. Now in this intimate and revealing film Prue and Li-Da travel to Cambodia to search for her biological family. Social media and DNA testing are allowing thousands of children who, like Li-Da, were evacuated just before Pol Pot’s genocide to reconnect with lost relatives. For Prue, as she approaches 80, there may not be many more chances to make this journey. And for Li-Da this is her chance to help Prue understand why it’s so important to explore her heritage. What neither of them can predict is how they will react should they find what they are looking for.
