Abstract:     
A Vietnamese woman has delusions of grandeur about her absent son’s position as an imperial servant and its reflection upon her social status. Ignoring the realities of her own poverty and lacking social status the woman desperately longs for the return of her son for her own social validation. Upon the return of her son, the woman is forced to recognize the harsh realities of her position in life.
