1975. Saigon was falling and the lives of thousands of Vietnamese would change forever... Displaced... a new country, a new language, America. Opportunity... but not a home, not a job. A dream. Hollywood icon, Tippi Hedren, gave her time and heart on the South China Sea, bravely helping Vietnamese refugees and eventually becoming a fixture in the camp known as Hope Village. There, Miss Hedren personally conceived and provided the means for twenty of the first refugees to establish themselves as manicurists. Together, they brought beauty to the masses, and established a new industry that became a Vietnamese American Dream for a people whose language has no word to describe it. This is the story of the Vietnamese 'nail worker.'
How one Hollywood starlet helped so many... and changed the face of an industry.
