A portrait of Nguyen Duc Dat, a blind guitarist
who is a triple outcast: disabled,
Amerasian, and an orphan.
Dat went from a life on the streets of Saigon
selling lottery tickets to winning guitar championships
in the state of California, where he now resides.
The video unfolds in layers of conversation with Dat
about his experiences as a new immigrant
and young adult in America.
