In this film made over ten years, filmmaker Barbara Sonneborn took a pilgrimage to the Vietnamese countryside where her husband died. She and translator (and fellow war widow) Xuan Ngoc Nguyen explore the meaning of war and loss on a human level. The film weaves interviews with Vietnamese and American widows into a vivid testament to the legacy of war.
