When Kulap Vilaysack was fourteen, she took her father's side in an argument and her mother replied, 'Why are you defending him? He's not your real dad.' Twenty years later she's finally ready to explore what that means. ORIGIN STORY is a feature-length, international quest - with stops in Los Angeles, Minnesota, and Laos - to meet the biological father Kulap Vilaysack never knew. On the road, unforeseen revelations strike as hilarious or heartbreaking, rarely in between. ORIGIN STORY is a deeply personal but universally relevant tale of immigration, conflict, identity and personal responsibility.
