Follows 3+ generations in a family as they move from post-war Vietnam to a refugee camp in Malaysia, and then to California or Paris. Negotiating cultural and family expectations, loyalties. Loving one another and trying to be helpful, (or hurtful), but not always in the ways that help is needed.
Wrenching and realistic. A fascinating look into the experiences people can have adapting to refugee status and citizenship in a new country, and the ways that children need different things than their parents and grandparents.
