Why My Dad Loves

Milwaukee Film Festival

At the age of 13, my father left his homeland, Laos, seeking a brighter future in the United States. Throughout the years, he devoted himself to supporting his family, seldom sharing the details of his past. This film intimately explores the experiences that shaped my father's understanding of love.
