Director Dieu Hao Do examines the fragmentation of his family. The American War in Vietnam scattered them across three continents. Almost 50 years after their escape, contact between the seven siblings has all but broken off. How did trauma from persecution and violence inscribe itself in the bodies and souls of the survivors and their children? What has life in exile done to them over the years? Is communism to blame for the fact that they no longer speak to each other? After the fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975, more than 1.5 million people fled the communist regime, many of whom - including the director's family - belonged to the Chinese minority there.
