Vietnam was a country that was war-torn and left reeling. Escape from Vietnam is the true story of a young Vietnamese woman's flight from hell. In a nation were napalm bombs scorched the earth, this is Mai's personal chronicle of war. Domestic violence shattered her world, as she was routinely beaten and tortured mentally in violent outbursts of temper by her enraged husband. Death was inevitable, so out of desperation Mai conjured up a plan for her husband to escape. Through a twist in fate, Mai was given the opportunity to escape instead of him, but she was only given a few minutes to decide-could she leave her children behind? Would she take the chance of possibly dying while seeking freedom on ravaging ocean waters or be systematically murdered by her husband? This led up to the decision that terrified her either way-to stay or to escape from Vietnam!
