With communist forces poised to overtake her home country of Laos, and her father already sent off to die in the work camps, six-year-old Dee, her mother, and her siblings begin the unthinkable act of escaping the only place they know and love.Then after a chance meeting with an American priest, Dee's mother makes the difficult decision to relocate them all to America - a distant land they had only heard about.What follows is the heart-wrenching story of family bonds, hope and survival. It's a story of courage, racism, and abandoned personal and cultural identity. It's the story of a young woman trying to come to terms with who she is in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. And it's the story of a shocking and unlikely reunion that would change everything.
