About this title

Synopsis:

A family escapes Vietnam at the end of the war and exiles to America. Chien, Mai, and their parents have a chance of a lifetime to live the American dreams, but the father's verbal and physical abuse, alcoholism, and mental illness force Chien, the oldest daughter, into a delimma of submitting to an authoritarian father or standing up to him while caring for her mentally retarded sister. She must choose between the path of her mother grounded in fear and tradition or freedom that is America. In My Father's House explores the devastation of war, poverty, ignorance, mental illness, and patriarchy on the lives of women and children.
