"Almost two decades ago, Chuh and Rex, refugees from the indigenous tribes of Vietnam, fell in love and started a family in North Carolina. Chuh and Rex were childhood lovers who ended up raising a family of four daughters. In 2017, Chuh was deported to Vietnam, leaving his young wife and daughters in the U.S. The psychological and emotional punishment of being separated has made both of their lives extremely difficult. Chuh struggles to adjust to life in Vietnam, while Rex exemplifies resilience and skill as she balances raising her children, maintaining her long-distance relationship, working full time, and navigating the legal system for her husband’s return to the U.S."
