Daughter from Danang 1x57, or 1x81

A Vietnamese mother and her Amerasian daughter are reunited after 22 years. Heidi Bub (aka Mai Thi Hiep), a young Vietnamese American woman from Tennessee, always dreamed of a joyful reunion, but unlike the cliche happy endings associated with most reunion stories, Daughter From Danang tensely unfolds as cultural differences and the years of separation take their toll. Many programs have been made about the Vietnam War, but few have focused on the personal stories of women and children whose lives were forever changed by choices made during that time.
