Be spellbound as the presenter’s tells of her escape from communist oppression in Vietnam and the physical and emotional misery she endured on her way to America. Before the war, Thanh Duong came from a wealthy family, but after the fall of Saigon and communism reared its ugly head, the lifestyle to which she was accustomed no longer existed. Her account of life in Vietnam after the fall of Saigon gives insight into the hardships endured by the people of South Vietnam. She will provide details on the harsh realities of communism and the immense love of a family willing to risk everything to give two of their children a chance for a better life (not knowing the outcome) and the courage of those children throughout a harrowing journey to freedom.
