As a little girl Jaelâ€™s mother told her that when you plant seeds and look after them carefully the seeds will transform into a flower. JaÃ«l is an equally beautiful flower she used to tell her. Today JaÃ«l is 13 years old, beyond the age of stories about flowers and seeds. JaÃ«l simply wants to know who her donor father really is:
â€œI just want to know who he is and if I look like him.â€
JaÃ«l wants to meet her donor father. She is 13 years old, and will only be able to contact him when she turns 16 and receives his information. But JaÃ«l doesnâ€™t want to wait any longer and she tries to get the psychiatrist to grant her permission to meet him before then. Her lesbian mother tries to support her as best as she possibly can. In the meantime, JaÃ«l fantasizes about how he might be like. All she knows is that her donor father is Indonesian. Therefore, all Indonesian men - with those cute piggy noses - get her fullest attention..
