Between 1955 and 1975 the country Vietnam was in terrible conflict. life was extremely dangerous, difficult and there were minimal opportunities available for Vietnamise citizens.
during this time a young girl named tan le, her mother, grandmother and sister happened to make the bravest decisions of their life.
this brave decision was that tan Le and her family decided that they would leave Vietnam and travel the china seas journeying to Australia
before they went on the boat, Tan Les grandmother brought a bottle of poison, so if they encountered pirates during there journey, they would drink the poison, they would die without the pirates harming them
aside from that, tan le and her family also brought a limited range of supplies so they could survive the journey in the ocean. at least they would have something when they arrive in Australia.
when they first started this physical journey travelling the china seas tan le and her family were extremely terrified. this scary journey took 5 days and nights.
