Until the Fall of Saigon, the war was carefully chronicled in explicit detail from battlefield to body bags. But what happened to the Vietnamese population after the fall?  Why did women no longer wear nail polish? How were math books rewritten? What role did the Viet Cong now play in the new regime?  Why did neighbors stop holding birthday parties for children? When was suicide soup served?  Learn the 'rest of the story' that was never covered: the stunning profile of daily life for the average citizen left behind in the Republic of Vietnam.
