    In the final days of the Viet Nam War, Hang takes her little brother, Linh, to the airport, determined to find a way to safety in America. In a split second, Linh is ripped from her arms—and Hang is left behind in the war-torn country.

    Six years later, Hang has made the brutal journey from Viet Nam and is now in Texas as a refugee. She doesn’t know how she will find the little brother who was taken from her, until she meets LeeRoy, a city boy with big rodeo dreams, who decides to help her.

    Hang is overjoyed when she reunites with Linh. But when she realizes he doesn’t remember her, their family, or Viet Nam, her heart is crushed. Though the distance between them feels greater than ever, Hang has come so far that she will do anything to bridge the gap.
