Becoming Us is a deeply personal, character-driven documentary about a filmmaker and his donor-conceived siblings who find one another through a DNA test, discovering their newfound biological father in the process. Together, they navigate the complexities of redefining family through gatherings in the Midwest and a journey to their ancestral homeland in the Philippines. In an effort to heal the emotional wounds from their unshared past, they create fictitious childhood memories on home videos in their grandfather’s family home, nostalgically stuck in the 80s. This creative process allows them to explore the essence of family, affirming that, despite the lost years, a future exists for their new, modern family.
