A little Vietnamese girl tries to come to terms with her grief over the loss of her family and her new life with an Australian family. The swallows are here again. They have come south looking for summer. Did they fly over my country? Did they see my mum and dad? Did they see my little yellow canary? Onion Tears tells the story of Nam-Huong, a young Vietnamese girl living in Australia who is attempting to come to terms with her memories of the war in her homeland. Nam-Huong cries lots of onion tears, and it's only when she learns to laugh, that her tears fall like drops of dew.
