Myung Sook Cha came to the US with the intent of earning enough money to go back to Korea to take care of her father, only to discover that life in America was not as profitable nor verdant as she hoped and believed. After suffering major disappointments in her life, including a failed marriage, “I just worked diligently like an ant”, she recounts. Now nearing retirement years, she shares her hopes and dreams of traveling and opening a Pension House (Bed & Breakfast) for the tired and the weary.
