Description

Six well known Australians embark on the journey of a lifetime as they travel to their family's country of origin, most for the first time and with a parent or grandparent who had given up hope of ever returning home. Inspired by the overwhelming response to a unique documentary conceived by popular actor and presenter Eden Gaha, journalist Julietta Jameson follows in the footsteps of Eden as he visits Lebanon for the first time with his 95-year-old grandfather; actress and comedian Mary Coustas ('Effie') to Greece with her mother and brother; actor and singer Jay Laga'aia to Samoa with his mother and his young son; Sydney Roosters rugby league star Craig Wing to the Phillipines with his mother; author and doctor Cindy Pan to China with her mother; and singer Wendy Matthews to Canada for a reunion with her mother and brother. Many of these personal pilgrimages resulted in highly emotional reunions as the children are welcomed for the first time - and their parents return home after literally a lifetime away.The result is a poignant and moving journey of discovery that will strike a chord with the millions of Australians descended from immigrants - and anyone who has ever felt the pull of the most binding ties of all: family.
