THE LAST OF THE WINTHROPS explores the powerful revelations of a woman who reclaims her sense of self after taking an Ancestry DNA test. Initially she faces the truth that her father, Reginald Winthrop, who could trace his heritage literally to the founders of America, is not her biological father. After she is contacted by an unknown relative through their Ancestry DNA test, Viviane embraces her new identity, where she finds peace after facing powerful themes about love, blood and family. Join Viviane Winthrop for a discussion of the film and her path to find her ancestry.
