"Finding the Virgo" by Lauren Vuong

Vietnamese boat refugee, Lauren Vuong, embarks on a decades long search for the heroic captain and crew of the LNG Virgo, a US cargo ship that rescued her at sea at 7-years-old and saved her family and 57 other immigrants from certain death.

This story of compassion and gratitude traces the Vuong family's journey from the shores of Vietnam, through their perilous journey at sea and eventually to their resettlement in America. 

Capturing the American Hope and the American Dream, this documentary is a timeless tale of war, desperation, survival, and the serendipitous heroes who embody the best of humanity. A story needed now more than ever before.
