Execllent film
23 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I want to thank Mr. Ham Tran and his team for making this true and tearful film.

It brought back many memories when life was full of hardships, sufferings and miseries.

It's now the past for so called "the boat peoples", however, the Communist is still controlling Vietnam.

Life is getting better after the fall of communism in the East Europe, but freedom is still the dream of the Vietnamese...

Wish them have all the courage and lucks ... till one day the sun will rise, the kites will fly ... in that wonderful country !
