The Beauty of Humanity Movement is about a young man who works as a tour guide named Tu, who guides tourists at war resorts, a Vietnamese-American woman named Maggie in search of his father who was lost in the war. Tranh and about an old man named Hung, who had to overcome the upheaval after the war, but after all he kept hope and cooked for his community. Much of this book is about a food and the people who enjoy it. This is a book about pho.
What you’ll learn from the book: We think that every single dish has a foundation. Each culture has a type of dumpling. Each culture has a type of soup. How profound is the story after a dish? The origins of a dish can express society’s inner self more than you might think, transcending time, borders and history, and permeates cultural and personal history. In this story, pho is the pillar and symbol of hope.
