Born as Nuensie Suku and raised into poverty in Loeng Nok Tha, Thailand, she is well known as Nancy Oakley. She has a tenacious spirit that carried her from childhood to teen years when she eventually came to the U.S. during the Vietnam War. Thinking her only way out of the harsh reality of life as a Thailand peasant is to marry an American man, young Nuensie captivates the heart of a U.S. soldier and moves to Utah. After their once peaceful relationship becomes abusive, Nuensie bears two children who become victims of a corrupt system. Years of searching for her children finally leads Nuensie to a new life in Texas, but not without several near-death experiences along the way. One phone call then changes her life as Nuensie learns about the brutal murder of her sister and its subsequent consequences.
