Shot over 3 years, "From Russia, For Love" follows the story of older Russian children who are adopted by North American families. We examine their memories, losses, attachments and wounds as the process unfolds. Rather than intrude, the camera merely records - capturing moments of both tenderness and confusion, tension and compassion. Documentary filmmaker Julia Ivanova, an adoption coordinator herself, is allowed unprecedented access to Russia's orphanage system, the children's lives, and intimate moments with the new families.

The story starts at an orphanage outside of Moscow where 2 Canadian couples come to adopt a child each. Good shots of winter in this part of Russia and the children at the orphanage. It's sad when one child from a large family abandoned by their mum leaves for Canada on her own but once settled in her new life her new family work hard to bring out first one brother then another. In the end they realise they can't save them all and the story finishes. Nice young kids and caring adoptive families.
