From the Killing Fields of Cambodia to a small town in the Pacific Northwest, refugee Khath Sophal treads a narrow path between the horrors of his past and the uncertainties of the present. Tormented by flashbacks and haunted by memories of his missing daughters, Khath befriends Nary, a troubled Cambodian girl the same age as his youngest daughter. The relationship proves healing, but is torn apart when events lead Khath to suspect that Nary’s mother Phally is Khmer Rouge. Phally vehemently denies these accusations. Khath’s search for the truth leads him to the brink of the brutality he so despises in the Khmer Rouge. His struggle to wrest a confession from Phally ultimately forces him to face his own past and unravel the mystery of his missing daughters.
