Over the years i must have seen at least several thousand movies, and i think this one would have to be in my top ten. The first half is a little slow, but thats only because you dont know the secret. The last fifteen minutes are powerful, well worth the wait. Pay attention when you watch this film, things are not as they seem. A vietnamese/american girl is adopted by an american couple, and although she has a very good life she becomes restless wondering about her roots. When her adopted father dies, she sets out to find her real father and finds him in the most unlikely of places. Bravo to the folks who made this film. Well done indeed.
