In A Quiet Girl, adopted Montreal filmmaker Adrian Wills discovers on camera and in real time, the startling truths of his complex beginnings in Newfoundland.

In this moving feature documentary that combines 16mm footage and contemporary images with deeply personal conversations, Wills’ voyage transforms from an urgent search for identity into a quest to give a quiet girl her voice.
