The resolution in this film comes in the form of a brief epilogue, which begins with a caption that reads: Two Years Later. Bub and her children are seen visiting her adoptive grandmother. In an interview, Bub summarizes her current feelings about her Vietnamese family. "I guess I have closed the door on them," she says, adding, "but I didn't lock the door. It's closed, but it's not locked." The ending, in part because of this ambiguity, is a satisfying resolution to the story that began the film.
