Synopsis:
Pang Vang has been in America for 30 years, however, the past few years have been more difficult than ever. Uncertain of her future, Pang falls ill and no matter how many doctors she sees, they cannot find answers to her aliment. Fatefully, higher powers step in and through dreams show her (Young Pang) her past lives and the choices she has made that have all led up to this single moment in her destiny—Pang becoming a Shaman. Can Pang make the life changing decision between becoming a Shaman and therefore, succumbing to a larger force of power, or to deny her destiny and thus, be punished by death? Meanwhile, her daughter Song, struggles to understand the complexity of her mother’s mortality as Song painfully grapples with her identity growing up Hmong in Minnesota. Both Pang and Song have self-inflicted shame brought upon by societal standards, pressures and definitions of what it means to be a “Hmong woman,” and “American.” Can Pang and Song learn to let go of their shame despite the secrets, silents fears and hidden hearts?
