After a dangerous sea crossing and a stay in a camp in Malaysia, the young Vietnamese Tinh and her family are accepted as refugees in Canada and arrive in Montreal where they begin their new life. But for Tinh, adapting has its share of difficulties. Already shy and reserved by nature, she must learn a new language and integrate into her new environment. Haunted by the hardships of the journey, Tinh will have to draw deep within herself the resilience necessary for her survival and her happiness.

Ru est inspiré de l’histoire de Kim Thúy (Tinh) à son arrivée au Québec. Après une traversée périlleuse en mer et un séjour éprouvant dans un camp de réfugiés en Malaisie, la jeune Vietnamienne Tinh et sa famille arrivent au Québec où elles entreprennent leur nouvelle vie. Grâce à l’accueil chaleureux de tous, dont la famille qui les parraine, Tinh s’adapte lentement à sa réalité. Elle surmontera sa timidité pour apprendre une nouvelle langue, découvrir une nouvelle culture, s’adapter à une nouvelle vie au Québec.
