This epic is about a Vietnamese man born of a Vietnamese mother and a GI father who is forced to seek a new life in the United States. Filmed in Ho Chi Minh City (present-day Saigon), New York and Texas, the film follows the young man on his odyssey from rural Vietnam in search of his father in Houston. It is a powerful and emotion-filled depiction of the almost unbelievable trials and tribulations of an illegal immigrant. Newcomer Damien Nguyen stars with Tim Roth and Nick Nolte.
