During the United States evacuation from Cambodia, many Cambodian orphans were taken to America. Am and his brother were given the opportunity to leave the country, but their parents refused to let them go. Their father doubted that the Khmer Rouge would take over the country, so the family remained in Cambodia. When the regime did take over the country in April, 1975, senseless violence and killings took place throughout Phnom Penh.
Am shares the terrifying memories of his life during the horrific Khmer Rouge regime, his harrowing experiences living under another communist regime, the People's Republic of Kampuchea, and his amazing ability to find forgiveness after peace returned to Cambodia in 1993.
