by Tien Chu

Helen is an American journalist who is determined to capture the true story of The Struggle of the Vietnamese people as they fight against the communists overtaking their country.

Tan is a loyal Vietnamese Army officer, a talented and able man who has lead his troops into battle and been victorious on many occasions.

However neither of them can envision the battle that will take place with their emotions as they fight against their forbidden love. When Vietnam falls to the communists and Tan is removed to a “re-education” camp, Helen begins the search for her true love, not realizing that many times they are within arm’s length of each other, and only a chance turning of their heads keeps them from being reunited.

Will they find true happiness together or will fate conspire to keep them apart once again, reinforcing the forbidden nature of their inter-cultural love?
