What's the Story?
It’s 1975. Saigon has fallen. Quang lost his wife. Tong lost her fiancé. But now in America, a strange new land of cowboys, hippies, and bikers, these two Vietnamese refugees just might find each other. Playwright Qui Nguyen serves up hip-hop, sass, and revolution to tell his own parents' (mostly) true love story.
