Synopsis: Steven is one of the four hundred adopted children who were smuggled into the Netherlands during the Lebanese Civil War in 1975.  Until this day, the trace to their biological parents remains a path of unanswered questions. The more Steven is seeking answers about his roots and identity, the more he is facing lies and obstacles.
