Becoming a US citizen almost cost Minh Nguyen his life. He fled Vietnam by boat as a boy and almost died on the trip. He and his family ultimately found their way to the United States. Now a filmmaker, Nguyen lives in Los Angles with his wife and his brother’s family. This story of struggle, suffering, and courage is an inspiration to those engaged in an uphill challenge of immigration reform in this country.
