Ohh, I really want to see this one.
In 1972 near the end of the Vietnam war, the Vietnamese government were outcasting Ameriasian children while several U.S. families began to adopt them. Running Dragon is an autobiographical story about one of these American orphans, Joe Christmas (a.k.a. Lyn Phi Long or Running Dragon), and his biological Vietnamese sister, Hoa, who was separated from Joe during their adoption. 28 years later Joe discovers that Hoa has tracked him down and arranges for them to meet with her Vietnamese family in Little Saigon.
As the story unfolds we realize that Joe has never successfully fit in his with “All-American” family and community while growing up in America. And as a result of years of separation from his Vietnamese heritage, he also struggles to connect with Hoa’s adopted traditional Vietnamese family, making it all the more difficult for him to find acceptance in either world.
