Unpredictable Journey

Take a journey through Vietnam with a group of eight people who went there to produce these radio documentaries. We find the unpredictable, the complexity of the Vietnamese world. We delve into the world of Buddhism we find is the underpinning of the society, and we find a land caught between the hopes of its past and the dreams of its future. We meet the poets, the writers, and the artists who fought during the war with the Americans, and we meet the young people who have come after them with their hopes and dreams for the future.
