A Family Unmade And Made Again

Produced by
Alex Kotlowitz and Amy Drozdowska

Producers Alex Kotlowitz and Amy Drozdowska capture the unfolding connection between a man and his adopted son.  Mike Checuga was a 25- year old white guy and Victor was a 10 year old black kid. Mike adopted Victor and his family did not approve. As Victor became a young man, he drifted away from his adoptive father, and struggled on his own.
