When Linh is ripped from her arms she is left behind in the war-torn country. Six years later she makes the brutal journey to Texas as a refugee. She's overjoyed when she is reunited with Linh but crushed when she discovers he doesn't remember her or their family. Hang has come so far that she will do anything to bridge the gap.
