The remarkable story of how a young girl traced her birth mother. In 1972, 15-year-old Sue Schilperoot from Mountain Ash found herself pregnant. Parental pressure forced her to give up the child for adoption but every year she celebrated her daughter Helen's birthday in private. Twenty-one years later, Sue wrote Half Million Women, a play about her experiences. On the opening night mother and daughter were reunited. Producer Martin Kurzik Repeat
