A Vietnamese boy journeys with his mother from the fall of Saigon to a Viet Cong re-education camp in the jungle, then to a refugee camp in Thailand, and, finally, to America. But in the New World he faces a turbulent passage to manhood shaped by his estranged father and by his own estrangement in the land of snow, hip-hop, urban gangs, and clashing cultures. A riveting immigrant drama that vividly depicts what it's like to become American while you're haunted by the ghosts of Viet Nam.A beautiful and powerful story about becoming a man and becoming American.
