In Scarface, the gash under Tranh’s eye is only one of the scars he carries from his time in the refugee camp. He thinks his troubles will be over at a new school in a new country. But he’s bullied and and gets in trouble when he tries to defend himself. Then, on a school ski trip, his worst enemy breaks his leg and Tranh’s the only one around to help.
