GIVEN AWAY Korean Adoptees Tell Their Stories

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jeena Yi, Allison Hiroto, James Chen, Cindy Kay, Glenn Morey

Biography & Memoir • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

In this audiobook offshoot of his film project SIDE BY SIDE, filmmaker Glenn Morey presents moving first-person accounts of 15 people who were separated from their families in South Korea and adopted by people in Western countries. Morey, himself a South Korean adoptee, narrates with earnest warmth, explaining what inspired him and his wife to follow up with the South Korean adoptees. Infusing cinematic experience into this audio presentation, Morey's pace, cuts, and fades highlight the subjects' new language and reveal the similarities and vast differences of their experiences. Each voice tells a unique story with genuine raw swells of emotion that express surprise, sadness, resignation, and happiness. Deeply affecting, this sensitive and powerful production is an important message about human identity and complexity. M.F.
