A documentary about a Hmong man moving to America and adapting to a new society.
1 October 2017 | by littlebob-52423See all my reviews

What a great documentary. I had to watch this for my Religious Studies 102 class and the movie was phenomenal. Great watch for immigrant kids, but really anybody in general. It can get quite emotional at parts but that's really what makes it so great. Everything that everybody feels is understandable but good things seem to somehow work out in the end.
