Donor Unknown follows JoEllen from her discovery of her siblings, to the moment Donor Jeffrey steps forward to identify himself as Donor 150, to her decision to travel to California to meet him. Along the way, we meet Danielle in New York, who was not told by her parents that she was donor-conceived till the age of 14, and is uncertain of the kind of relationship she could ever sustain with Jeffrey; Rachelle in Memphis, who is not sure if she ever wants to meet him; Ryann and Roxanne, who live in California and have already established some kind of relationship with Jeffrey; and Fletcher, 19, who decides the time is right to follow JoEllen on her journey to meet their donor father.

The focus of this documentary is not on LGBTQ issues but it is an indepth look at the experiences of donor conceived youth and their connection to other donor siblings and donor family.
