Mrs. Nguyen Cong Minh, a refugee from Hue, talks about the Communists launching the 1968 battle for Hue during the New Year celebrations in the city. She remembers that the sound of gunfire was being interspersed with the sounds of firecrackers so no one at the time realized that the Communists were overrunning the city. Nguyen Cong Minh remembers her father being taken away to a reeducation camp and never returning, and her long search to find his remains in the mass graves of reeducation camp prisoners.
