Steve Lickteig is a native Kansan... a KU graduate, a former news staffer for KANU radio, and now a radio producer for NPR. At the age of 18, he learned that his adoptive parents were actually his biological grandparents. His birth mother was a woman he had always known as his sister. He's now made a documentary film telling the story of how he came to grips with this information. KPR's Laura Lorson spoke to him about making such a personal movie... and about the betrayal he felt.
