    The Film

    A Vietnamese family attempts to resolve its divided past when three brothers — one capitalist, one communist, one anti-war — who fought against each other in the Vietnam War meet again after decades and confront their differences. Meanwhile, two first generation Vietnamese American sisters try to reconcile a difficult past that altered the course of their lives.
