Storyline

In America, everyone has a family story of immigration. Every family, at some point, has had somebody leave their native country behind to search for a better life. How did they hold onto their identity? How did they adapt to their new life? Every family has a special story. In my case, it's my Chinese-American story. My father would always tell us his story about walking for 7 days and 6 nights, before swimming for 4 hours to Macau to escape communism in 1966. His story would fall on my deaf ears until I returned to China with him.

Worth the watch for sure
25 November 2018 | by chutneypicklesonryeSee all my reviews

Randomly stumbled across this one and very happy I did . Beautiful and sad story but also thought provoking. Subtitled well and tells the story smoothly and did not drag on. Recommend it if your interested in the true upbringing in China pre 70s and why so many migrated to America , was it smart move?
