518    Originally produced by Documentary Educational Resources 
       in 2002. 
520    A heartbreaking documentary that upsets your expectations 
       of happily-ever-afters, Daughter from Danang is a riveting
       emotional drama of longing, identity, and the personal 
       legacy of war. To all outward appearances, Heidi is the 
       proverbial "all-American girl", hailing from small town 
       Pulaski, Tenn. But her birth name was Mai Thi Hiep. Born 
       in Danang, Vietnam in 1968, she's the mixed-race daughter 
       of an American serviceman and a Vietnamese woman. Fearing 
       for her daughter's safety at the war's end, Hiep's mother 
       sent her to the U.S. on Operation Babylift, a Ford 
       administration plan to relocate orphans and mixed-race 
       children to the U.S. for adoption before they fell victim 
       to a frighteningly uncertain future in Vietnam after the 
       Americans pulled out. Kim believed her daughter would be 
       in danger in Vietnam. "What I heard really worried me," 
       Kim says. "If you had worked for Americans and had 
       racially mixed children, they said those kids would be 
       gathered up, they would be soaked in gasoline and burnt." 
       The parting was devastating to both mother and child, who 
       would know nothing about each other for 22 years. Now, as 
       if by a miracle, they are reunited in Danang. But what 
       seems like the cue for a happy ending is anything but. 
       Heidi and her Vietnamese relatives find themselves caught 
       in a confusing clash of cultures and at the mercy of 
       conflicting emotions that will change their lives forever.
       Through intimate and sometimes excruciating moments, 
       Daughter from Danang profoundly shows how wide the chasms 
       of cultural difference and how deep the wounds of war can 
       run, even within one family. At its core, filmmakers Gail 
       Dolgin and Vicente Franco have created a thought-provoking
       film about identity, family and culture: what shapes our 
       sense of self? What defines our concept of family? And how
       do cultural expectations influence our choices? Since the 
       film takes places against the backdrop of the Vietnam War 
       it reveals how the trauma inflicted by that conflict 
       continues to haunt and harm those who survived it.
