VATSANA, a recent widow, and her daughter PHON have spent a lifetime struggling to understand
each other. Having never been able to find common footing with her daughter, and Phon clearly
favoring her father, the ever-increasing distance between the two seems insurmountable. When
Vatsana decides to take charge of her third act in life and travel the world, she realizes that she
cannot leave without a few last words with her estranged daughter. She decides to pen a letter to
Phon before her departure, but instead, comes to a decision to reveal the true story of their escape
decades ago from the war torn country of Laos. In a last ditch effort to reconcile, Vatsana is
determined, this time, to leave nothing left unsaid. Perhaps these words will heal a lifetime of pain.
