The documentary follows the lives of four young Filipino Amerasians as they struggle to find their sacred place in their own community. Charlene Rose, JR, Robert, and Margarita battle against the racial discrimination as they try to find their own identities in a very conservative society. They are the children of Filipino mothers and U.S. servicemen - who were forced to leave the archipelago when the military bases closed in 1992.

Watch "Left By The Ship" and learn how these children find acceptance in both their paternal roots and in their own community.
