"Sophany was a dancer in Cambodia. She learned the ancient ways of dancing handed down from generation to generation. . . . The dance gave her energy."

This is true story of a Cambodian refugee—a dancer and teacher—who built a life in the US after fleeing the Khmer Rouge. She became a
counselor to other Cambodian refugees and created a school of dance for children. Her gift of hope was to teach the traditional dances of Cambodia so that young people growing up far away from the land of their ancestors would know about their culture.
