The Beautiful Country

Binh (Damien Nguyen) is an outcast in his Vietnamese village due to his mixed race. He is half American, but knows neither of his parents. Forced to leave, first he finds his mother working for an abusive white family, then, taking his half brother with him, he hopes to find a better life, and his father, in America.
