The Boy From Baby House 10, Part 1

Meet John Lahutsky, a high school student in America who helps to tell the animated story of a boy with cerebral palsy once named Vanya. NBC's Keith Morrison reports from Russia, where Vanya's story begins nearly 20 years ago at a clearing house for unwanted children known as Baby House 10.

Vanya makes a strong impression upon British visitor Sarah Philps, who was living in Moscow with her journalist husband Alan. As Sarah learns that Vanya has been condemned to live in the Filimonki mental asylum, she discovers the horrors of the place that leave her feeling helpless.

Confined to his metal crib in Filimonki asylum, Vanya's health and morale slowly deteriorate until a Russian woman named Vika is compelled to help Vanya. Alongside Sarah Philps and her journalist husband Alan, Vika tries to get Vanya adopted so he can leave Filimonki before it's too late.

Alan Philps' news article about Vanya and Baby House 10 sparks strong support in England. Just as hope nearly runs out, Vanya is suddenly allowed to return to Baby House 10 after the children's wing at Filimonki mental asylum is shut down. Now the focus shifts back to getting Vanya adopted.

An American woman from Pennsylvania, Paula Lahutsky, reads a new bulletin in her church about Vanya and she is immediately compelled to meet the Russian boy. In the summer of 1999, Paula Lahutsky travels to meet the boy who would become her adopted son and grow up in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania as John.

Twenty years old, John revisits Russia to bring closure for Vanya, the boy he had once been in Baby House 10.  He joyfully meets his little sister, Olya, for the first time before hardening his emotions at the sight of the now boarded up Baby House 10 and Filimonki asylum, but celebrates those who helped find a new life in America.
