Half Vietnamese, half American, Tracy's not sure she fits in with her family in California. But when she and her best friend find a soldier's dogtag, she is jarred by memories from her life in Vietnam, and the lingering anti-war sentiments that surround her today. Where is home when you're a child of war? Is it the country that's buried deep within your memories? Or is it the place you live, among the people you call family?
