Half American and half Asian, they had been abandoned by their fathers to a xenophobic society that ostracized them. Nor was the U.S. government anxious to acknowledge their paternity and accept responsibility - until the Homecoming Act opened the door to their immigration. This poignant account renders the lives of these divided souls, resulting in an unflinching look at two countries, two cultures, and the legacy of a war that tore them both apart.
