It's a psychologically gripping tale of love, loss, and sexual identity, but it's also the story of adoptions spanning three generations. Briccetti was four when her parents divorced. Adopted by her stepfather, she lost contact with her biological father for many years. Having "felt heterosexual for the first 29 years of my life, I then just happened to fall in love with a woman," said Briccetti, who gave birth to two sons with the help of a local sperm bank. Her partner legally adopted the boys, which in the early Nineties was still a rare and laborious legal process involving "what felt not like interviews but interrogations."
