The Killing Fields of the Cambodian holocaust that took place from 1975 to 1979 under the leadership of the Khmer Rouge left over a million dead and led to a flood of refugees fleeing from Cambodia.

A portion of the refugees came to the United States in the early 1980s in an attempt to start their lives afresh.
