"TRIAL BY WATER is a searing account of the odyssey of two Vietnamese teenage brothers who are forced to escape their homeland in the middle of the night. As they set off for America by boat, with the dream of "a better life," their voyage at sea becomes an allegory of desperate choices. When the boat's engine breaks down, their journey turns into a nightmare. Faced with unthinkable acts of survival, each brother confronts his own issues of mortality and morality."
