Two Hometowns

Mai Thi Hiep was born in Danang, Vietnam's dominant port city, home to over 490,000 people. But she didn't live there long. At age six, she was airlifted to the United States and adopted by a single mother, Ann Neville, who renamed her Heidi. The two settled in the small town of Pulaski, Tennessee, population c. 7000.

Danang, Vietnam. Pulaski, Tennessee. Heidi can trace her origins back to two hometowns, on opposite sides of the globe. See her two hometown experiences through her eyes, in these comments taken from the film transcripts.
