In April 1975, as the US withdrew from Vietnam, an iconic picture of a Canadian woman in shock at the site of a plane crash in Saigon made world headlines. Naomi Bronstein had arranged to evacuate Vietnamese orphans on the plane, to bring them to new lives with adoptive parents in the West. The horror of that moment drove her on. Even a family of 12 (7 of them adopted) didn't deter her from saving thousands of sick and abandoned children in many parts of the world. This documentary highlights an emotional reunion - 25 years on - with orphans who miraculously escaped the crash. This special re-release is a tribute to the legacy of a Canadian hero.
