My Disastrous Family Reunion

Mark Hawkins grew up in Michigan. The family who gave him up for adoption when he was a baby lives in the heart of Appalachia. Thirty-eight years after he was adopted, Hawkins’ biological family found Mark on the internet and sent him an email, inviting him to their neck of the woods. It was a gathering of people with nothing in common, other than common D-N-A. A complete clash of cultures.

Follow Mark and his wife Rita as they head south to visit his biological family for the first time.
