"We'll fly from this camp before the rabbit breeds again." These words inspire Mai to perfect her embroidery skills while she and her grandmother are in a Hmong refugee camp in Thailand. As she works, she remembers her life with her parents before their death. The memories help her to stitch her own story which is told in quilt pictures.
