During the Chinese Civil War, part of the KMT (Chinese Nationalist) forces retreated to the Thai-Burma border region. Under international pressure, most of the troops were evacuated to Taiwan in 1961, yet some remained. In northern Thailand and in central Taiwan, the two groups shared a similar destiny while they were apart. Now that over 50 years have passed, their differences gradually emerge, and their descendants are struggling with their identity.
