SYNOPSIS

In the 80ies in a small Austrian village an old man, Mr. Karlhofer, saw a TV report about the struggle of Vietnamese Boat People. He decided to do something. He brought a young Vietnamese couple with a baby to his village, organised a home and work. This was the directors’ family.

 In the past there was another helper: Ali, a former Malaysian police officer. Ali supported them with food and stuff my father could sell. When they left the refugee camp Pulau Bidong, they promised Ali to write, but the address was lost. He was never able to say “Thank you”, never able to say that all went fine.

The film tells the story of the directors family who fled Vietnam in the 1980s and settled down in a small Austrian village to build up a new life. After all, they return for the first time to Malaysia to find Ali and the former refugee camp Pulau Bidong where the director was born. The past meets the presence.
