The play is based on stories gathered together from the Hmong community in Hobart, and links these stories in a non-naturalistic way. The stories are told chronologically, beginning with village life in Laos. Their life is severely disrupted when in 1975 the communists took over the government with the intention of eradicating the Hmong people. The Hmong people flee their burning village, survive in the jungle, fight for their life and encounter massacres of their people. They cross the Mekong River to live in the limbo of a refugee camp in Thailand, before eventually settling in Hobart to begin a new life.
