The Beautiful Country is directed by Hans Petter Moland and stars Tim Roth and Nick Nolte. Binh, a young Vietnamese man, makes an extraordinary six-month journey from his village, 300 miles south of Saigon, all the way to a farm in Texas, in search of his long lost GI father. As he travels with his young brother, his arduous trip is almost cut short when his refugee boat breaks down. Picked up by the authorities he is then interned in a camp in Malaysia, where an opportunistic escape with another refugee Ling, onto a smuggler's cargo boat, allows his quest to continue. Binh is then confronted by starvation, illness and an insane culture of gambling for food and water on the ocean freighter, skippered by Captain Oh. Eventually making it to New York he discovers that he has effectively become an indentured slave to the restaurant owners he works for. But for all this, his dream of finding his father never falters.

The Beautiful Country is an epic, highly emotional and ultimately uplifting story of one young man's seemingly impossible search for his lost father. Recorded and mixed at Preisner Studio, Niepoomice, Poland. Orchestra recorded at Studio S4 S2 Warsaw, Poland. Recording director and mix engineer: Rafal Paczkowski.
