Film profile of a Hmong family living in Santa Ana, California. The Hmong people, living high in the mountains of Laos, numbered only a few hundred thousand and kept to themselves, holding on to their language and customs while the great currents of war and politics in Southeast Asia ebbed and flowed around them...until the Vietnam war blew them out of their mountains, scattered them over the face of the earth, and left them homeless.
