In KIDS’ RIGHTS, filmmakers Michael Dudko and Olga Rudnieva ask themselves if they fit for parenthood after they personally witness Sir Elton John’s own failed attempt to adopt a child. Their investigation leads them through the Himalayas, the urban slums of Ukraine, China, the United Kingdom, and the United States where they uncover the surprising corruption behind adoption practices, as well as the cyclical problems caused by the welfare system. Through interviews with Dave Pelzer, author of A Child Called It, social workers, neuropsychologists, attorneys, parents, soon-to-be parents, victims of child abuse, and Sir Elton John himself, they learn that in today’s global society children are lacking the most basic human rights and privileges.
