An exploration of what it means to be Vietnamese in Western Europe. Quan 13, Translation of Silence, and The Nodey Process - whether in narrative or documentary form - investigate and celebrate the presence of those of Vietnamese descent who have made their homes in Paris. The only non-French film in this set, Amputated Asscheeks, takes place in Hamburg, Germany, and draws delineations between Vietnamese-Germans of different generations.

After the fall of Saigon, a young Vietnamese man travels to Paris to find his father who he has not seen since childhood. During this visit, he discovers more about his family's complicated history and how the Southern and Northern Vietnamese conflict continues to affect his life even in France.
