The impossible happens every day in the life of the refugee. Minnesota writer Kao Kalia Yang captured that experience in her gripping memoir. Now accomplished Hmong actress and traditional Flower Singer Gaosong Heu brings it to life in this moving stage production. Told with the immediacy of the author as a young girl, born in the Ban Vinai Refugee Camp in Thailand, the story follows her journey to a new land and a new life. For the author, for her parents and for her grandmother, the story explores themes of home, family, opportunity, acceptance and obligation.
