Global Voices

Daughter from Danang/Balikbayan

Episode Guide »
Daughter from Danang tells the story of a Vietnamese mother and her Amerasian daughter who are joyously reunited after 22 years -- but whose illusions are quickly shattered as the reality of cultural differences and years of separation sets in. In "Balikbayan," a migrant worker sends her mother back home bringing a taste of a 'better life' at all cost. This is one of the absurd but practical realities of mixing consumerism along with tradition in a developing nation.
