A collection of stories from day-to-day life in the Vietnam of 1990.

From bar girls and roller-skaters to Amerasian youth, the centerpiece is the story of Nguyen Van Lan's 15-year separation from his family. As the Vietnam war was ending, Lan, a South Vietnamese army officer, put his pregnant wife on the last plane out of Saigon, destined for America, where she arrived, gave birth to their daughter, and wondered if she would ever see her husband again. Lan wound up in a re-education camp, and after 15 years of imprisonment, is finally free to join his family in the U.S. How will he adjust to his long-lost family, and to America, so different from the world he knows?
