Forever Yours / Ikuisesti Sinun

Forever Yours

FOREVER YOURS is a documentary film about love and loss. Children in foster care yearn for their parents and the children’s parents grieve for the love they have lost, for their children. Foster parents, pressed to the limits of their own capabilities, attempt to make up for the lack of intimacy and the effects caused by societal stress. Day-to-day life moves the children from one place to another; children and adults become attached to each other and then have to part once again. These children are, in truth, on loan only. They grow up and seem to adapt themselves, but will they ever be able to trust in the future?
