The inspiring story of four refugees fleeing Vietnam in 1980, MOTHER FISH goes inside the mind of one of the survivors. The present melds with the past as a quiet factory worker relives the extraordinary journey when she and her sister took to the sea in a creaky river boat in search of a better life.
Behind every headline, every policy and every queue...is a human face.
