House Without Walls
Vietnam has fallen to the Vietcong. The American forces have fled and many in Vietnam are afraid of what is to follow. That is why Lam and Dee Dee are put on a boat and sent out to see. Their family hopes they will find refuge and make their way to their father in America. The voyage is filled with danger as their boat experiences problems and they are not granted refuge. They are shuttled from one refugee camp to another and on one occasion sent back out to see on a sinking boat. They are helped along the way by a kind family who adopts them as their own. Their story is one of strength through tragedy as they seek a better life. It is based on real siblings who fled Vietnam in the 1970s. It was a beautiful story about refugees looking for a better life and one that is just as pertinent today as it was 40 years ago.
