Una was the first person who used a change in Latvian Law to find her sister, who was lost in the process of adoption. Breaking through the bureaucratic jungle, she suddenly discovers that she has not only one but four sisters, all adopted and scattered around the world. The search for them becomes her mission that takes her to Europe, Russia and US. She translates her quest into 32 languages and posts it across the world. The almost impossible task is helped by the media, friends, courage and persistence.
