When a mother and daughter lose their home, their family, and their country, the only option is to escape. For their freedom, they would face imprisonment, abuse, and death escaping Vietnam as refugees. Their journey to America is another journey of survival. Even in the darkest moments of poverty, racism, language and cultural barriers, abuse, and depression, they found a glimmer of hope to live on.
