HIGH FIVE is a story of international adoption unlike any other. Cathy and Martin Ward travel to rural Ukraine to try and adopt five brothers and sisters, who become separated when only the adoption of the two middle sisters goes through. When a year later the kids are re-united, Yuliya, the oldest girl, cannot find her place in a new family. She favors Martin over Cathy and grieves the loss of the bond with siblings. The camera follows the family for over three years, capturing the complicated reality of international adoption, the intensity of teenage years and the growing pains of a family of two becoming a family of seven.
