Three young girls have one thing in common: their families are pretty unique. Tragicomic youth documentary about donor fathers, bonus moms, half-brothers and other unorthodox family structures. 

What is it like to discover you have a sperm donor father? What does it mean in practice to be the child of divorced parents? This tragicomic, short youth documentary focuses on three young girls of various ages. They have wholly individual stories, but share one common asset: their unusual family construction, including stepfathers, half-brothers, bonus or half-mothers. The girls introduce their families and for the first time share their admiration, their questions and their unexpressed feelings with their parents.
