Forty years after having fled the war in Vietnam through Laos, a young Canadian woman who arrived as a Boat People refugee goes back to her native land to meet with a long lost aunt. The emotional gathering sets the tone for a discovery trip and identity quest across Vietnam but also Lao and Cambodia, the three countries that once comprised French Indochina. By interviewing common people with extraordinary lives, the film draws links between the eruption of the war and decades of colonization.
