Lea Salonga made this a ten! Want to see more of her.
17 June 2001 | by mac_mcneilSee all my reviews

An excellent story about some of the Vietnam war vets. These were the homeless a few decades back. The serious music was inspiring. I believe Ms. Salonga played herself. I knew that she was a singer but her piano playing showed real musical training.
