The young British Vietnamese Kit is barely six when he and his family escape Saigon as ‘boat refugees’ after the Vietnam War. After 30 years abroad he returns to his home country for the first time. 


No longer familiar with this country and unable to speak his native language, Kit embarks on a personal journey from Saigon to Hanoi in search of a place to scatter his parents’ ashes. Along the way he reconnects with his childhood friend Lee and falls for Lewis, an American whose father had fought in the war.
