Disclaimer: This film contains nudity and mature sexual content.

There is a tradition in ancient Kyrgyzstan whereby parents of a large family offer their baby to a childless couple. In a time-honored ritual, five elderly women pass the baby over their bent knees and pronounce it “Beshkempir.” Azate is one such baby. Life runs smoothly for Azate until the day he finds out he is adopted – a revelation that turns his world upside down.

An expressive and breathtaking film, The Adopted Son is both a celebration of local and regional idiosyncrasies, and a look at the universal experiences of adolescence.
