Movie Info

When Kulap Vilaysack was 14, 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 she 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, and personal responsibility.

  • There's little self-editing here, giving the audience insight into her pain, an experience that is both moving and uncomfortable in its raw state.

  • Origin Story makes the statement "you're not alone" and "you don't have to go through it alone."
