Chau, Beyond the LInes

During the Vietnam War, the United States dropped 20 million gallons of chemicals onto the dense jungles of Vietnam, in order to rid the Northern Vietnamese Army of their food and cover. More than 40 years later, Chau, a teenager living in a Vietnamese care center for kids disabled by the chemical Agent Orange, battles with the reality of his dream to one day become a professional artist. With a rare disability in his arms and legs, Chau is repeatedly told his dream is not only unrealistic, but impossible. At age 17 and against all odds, Chau ventures out into the real world to see, if in fact, he can make his dream a reality.
