Fascinating story of a refugee
19 May 2003 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I find this to be a very interesting film, first because of my time in Viet Nam and second because it explores the thoughts and feelings of a young woman from Viet Nam who returns to find her roots. The film is a record of her visit, post war, over the objection of her father. She makes contact with the family left behind and takes a no holds barred look at conditions of the country she left as a child. A wonderful expose of what it means to be a refugee and to return to the home of one's birth even though the native country and the adopted country are at odds. This film transcends politics but doesn't shy from them as it looks at culture of those left behind and those who have moved on to a new life. I think that everyone should view this film and get a feel of what it means to have been a child of a long, controversial war.
