Summary This is the story of one Vietnamese family. For Charles Tran Van Lam, Foreign Minister in South Vietnam during the Vietnam War, his love of democracy would turn into a poisonous cocktail that would shatter his family's life. Thirty years later this is the story of his nine children, flung to all points of the compass. This contemporary story is about the cost of conflict, the reality of exile and the loss of homeland, culture and closeness of family. It is told through the eyes of the children in their culturally diverse locations, using extraordinary standard 8 footage shot by Tran Van Lam in 1950s to 70s Vietnam.
