A revealing, sometimes disturbing, heartfelt glimpse at early '90s Vietnam, from the viewpoint of a most interesting individual—a personality whose rich and fascinating path back to her native homeland, nearly threatens to outshine the narrative detailing the tremendously dramatic, cultural and political landscape of the war-torn country.
Interviews with family living in both America and Asia, politicians and military leaders from each country, and biracial offspring produced by the war (either transplanted to the US, or abandoned by GIs in Vietnam), provide poignant insight and perspective from both sides.
Equally impressive is the surprisingly neutral tone presented by the director (considering obvious personal connections)—diplomatically, and yet somehow inherently subversively allowing viewpoints to air with a viscerally provocative, journalistic lack of judgment, that empowers the audience to form their own opinions.
