S.O.S. - Stories of Survival: Introduction


Imagine you are a child forced to leave your homeland... its customs, traditions, and all things familiar. Will there be peace half-way around the globe?

Meet five Vietnamese adolescents who, decades ago, barely survived escapes in squalid boats. Years later, they still struggle with others' prejudices, their own ambitions, and bridging two cultures in the U.S. midwest.

In a weaving of personal accounts, this half-hour documentary tries to highlight how stories of desperation and survival still go on all over this globe.
