As his sons dressed up in cowboy suits and his daughters pirouetted through ballet lessons, he held meetings with the most powerful political players in the world.But when Saigon fell in 1975, Tran Van Lam left his country with nothing - not even his citizenship. Told by his nine children from their now disparate locations around the globe, the Trans' story provides a unique insight into an eastern diaspora. It reveals the importance of identity in a family flung to all points of the compass.
