In 1975, with the end of the war in Vietnam imminent, Mai Thi Kim, a poor, young Vietnamese woman, sent her seven-year-old daughter to America as part of a controversial evacuation program known as Operation Babylift. Kim believed her daughter Hiep -- who was conceived during a brief love affair with an American Naval officer -- would be in danger in Vietnam. Hiep's journey took her to Pulaski, Tennessee, where she was adopted by a single woman and renamed Heidi, and became "101%" American. In 1997, Heidi decides to return to Vietnam in search of her mother. The film follows mother and daughter over the course of their one-week reunion, and in painful, difficult scenes, it becomes apparent that the cultural gulf between them is much larger than either imagined. It reveals how the trauma inflicted by the Vietnam War continues to haunt and harm those who survived it
