Ahn Do and his family left Vietnam during the war because, his parents had decided it wasn't safe enough for them to live there anymore.
Arriving in Australia
During the time on the boat Ahn Do was attacked by Pirates. One of the pirates found gold in Ahn's little brothers diaper so the pirate held him overboard, then decided to spare his life.
After the pirates had come they left Ahn and his family with nothing. They had taken all of their stuff. However one of the pirates had felt sorry for Ahn and his family so he chucked them a bottle of water.
