America as seen through the eyes of Vietnamese immigrants. The setting is Galveston, Texas, and in one incident a Vietnamese doctor is stopped by a policeman who throws his car keys under the car to force him to crawl. Subsequently the doctor is comforted by a white nurse "in that awful American way. They were always making everything right with understanding words. No one here knew the dignity of silence."
