Description
An oral history of Hien Thi Tran: a mother who was fortunate to migrate out of Vietnam after the fall of Saigon with her children, but with great fear. She tells her story of a seemingly simple, upper middle-class lifestyle, but also incites feelings of loneliness with a husband at war. Tragedies of the Vietnam War lead her to make heavy decisions that change the course of her family, her marriage, and her children.
